    Tree of the Year?

    Does anybody know if there is a tree of the year? Like we have the perennial plant of the year, etc.. If so, where do I go to find this information?

    RE: Tree of the Year?

    I'm not sure that there is a tree of the year, but this site had a poll a while ago about people's favorite tree. I believe it was the maple. And the national tree is the Oak. But I dont know anything about tree of the year. If you find out let me know.

    Each year, the Nebraska Nursery & Landscape Association and the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum selects and promotes exceptional plants, trees and shrubs.

    This year they have chosen the ginko as their Tree of the Year, and the Korean Spirea, Spiraea fritschiana as their Shrub of the Year. The Great Plants program focuses on promoting good selections for sites in the Great Plains states.
