The annual Loudoun County Arbor Day tree photo contest is underway. This year's theme is “Trees of Character.” Photos will be accepted through Wednesday, April 12, in advance of the virtual Loudoun County Arbor Day Celebration. Winning photos and honorable mentions are scheduled to be posted on the county’s website at loudoun.gov/trees on April 28.
Entries must be:
- A photo of a single tree or group of trees located in Loudoun County.
- Original photos taken by the entrant.
- Digital and submitted through this online form. High resolution photos are encouraged. Only two entries allowed per person or group.
Entrants are asked to provide a brief explanation of why they think the tree they photographed has a unique character. For example, does the tree (or trees) have a unique size, prominence, age, shape, trunk, cavity or other feature that makes it a great “tree of character?”
Awards will be distributed to the top three photos. Only the winning and honorable mention entrants will be notified. Photos will not be returned and will become the property of the Loudoun County Arbor Day committee.
