Vote for your favourite Welsh tree!
An email from a Welsh publisher guided me to the Woodland Trust's Wales' Tree of the Year competition.

"These six trees are the finalists in Wales' Tree of the Year, an annual search for the nation's best loved tree. The winner will compete against trees from all over the Continent for the title of European Tree of the Year, organised by the Environmental Partnership Association."

I voted for the Derwen Hwyl, Hafod y Llan, Beddgelert because I thought it was the mostly mysteriously Welsh tree. One can imagine the tylwyth teg (Welsh fairies) meeting there. But if you want to have a look at the shortlisted trees and possibly cast your vote, here is the link:

I didn't vote because I don't think it would be appropriate for me to do so, but my favorite is the Chestnut. I always have a sweet spot for trees that have taken damage that should have killed them and come back so strongly.

Thank you, that was lovely. I could hug everyone of them.

I wonder how it must feel to be the second most Welsh tree in Wales...
