Awesome Tree Contest returns

The Greenwich Tree Conservancy is encouraging residents to take part in the Awesome Tree Contest.

In the coming weeks, before the leaves start to fall, look around you and appreciate the town’s abundant trees. If you happen to spot one that is particularly interesting, take your smartphone or digital camera outside and click away for a chance to win prizes.

This year the contest features four diferent categories of trees: the best photo of a sculptural form, the best photo of photogenic leaves or a leaf, the best photo of a heroic tree (one that has survived storms, infestations, etc.), and favorite tale-inspired tree.

Entry forms are available online at or at any participating sponsors, including the town of Greenwich, Garden Education Center, Bruce Museum, Audubon Greenwich, Greenwich Land Trust, Greenwich Green & Clean, Greenwich Libraries, and Perrot Library.

The deadline for submitting entry forms is Oct. 20, and prizes will be awarded for all winning entries on Sunday, Nov. 9, at 3 at the Garden Education Center on Bible Street in Cos Cob.
