Vote for Gilwell Oak to win in Europe

This year’s UK Tree of the Year winner, the Gilwell Oak, is now competing to be named European Tree of the Year, supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

This marvellous oak tree is located in the heart of Gilwell Park in Essex, the home of the scouting movement conceived by Robert Baden-Powell. He adopted the towering oak as a neat analogy in 1929 for not only the growth of the scouting movement worldwide, which began with a small trial camp some 21 years earlier, but as a message to young scouts that big things are possible from modest starts.
