The Great Toronto Tree Hunt

Posted on April 23, 2015

The city of Toronto is home to over 10 million trees of various shapes, species, and sizes. Many have led fascinating lives and hold special places in our hearts. While the trees can’t share their stories, you can!

That’s why LEAF, in partnership with TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, along with Ontario Power Generation and the City of Toronto, is hosting The Great Toronto Tree Hunt – a contest to find and celebrate the greatest trees in our city.

Online nominations will be accepted April 22 – May 31, 2015.
Public voting runs June 1 – 15, 2015.

It’s easy! To nominate a tree, just take a quick snapshot or an artistic photo and provide a brief description of why that tree is great.  You or your group can nominate as many trees as you’d like online in each of the five categories.

One winner in each category will be selected through a combination of votes and judging. A cash prize of $250 will be awarded to each winner!

Nominations will be posted online and finalists in each category will be published on our website on June 23, 2015. Winners and prizes will be announced at an awards ceremony held June 24, 2015. Click here for a full list of rules and judging criteria.
