Tree of the Year – TV Coverage

Last Sunday, the Cubbington Pear Tree was announced as Tree of the Year for England. Here’s how that news was covered on the local news. After winning the Woodland Trust competition, it will now go on to compete for European Tree of the Year in February 2016.


Tree of the year – Winner to be announced today

A couple of weeks ago, voting closed in the Woodland Trust competition for Tree of the Year, with the Cubbington Pear Tree which would be felled if HS2 goes ahead making the final ten.

With just three days to go, the Woodland Trust Facebook page revealed that the Cubbington Pear Tree was out in front, ahead of some of the most famous and historically significant trees in the country.

The winner will be announced on Countryfile tonight, on BBC1 between 6.15 and 7.15. Here’s and interview with Cubbington Action Group Chair, Peter Delow recorded when the competition was ongoing.
