Tree Photo Contest 2021

No Longer Accepting Entries

Hooray! Our 12th Annual Arbor Day Tree Photo Contest is here!

For Arbor Day every year, we have a Tree Photo Contest. This isn't just a contest, it's a chance for all of us to share and appreciate the beauty of nature. Check out some of the incredible photos from past contests.

2021 Rules

Just say NO to sending us a photo you found on the internet. Please make sure the photo is one you took yourself, that the main object in the photo is a tree or trees, and that it doesn't have any copyright restrictions on it. Please only enter ONE photo.

We reserve the right to not post your photo if one or more of these conditions aren't met. 

We reserve the right to use your photo on our website and in our email newsletters, but the photo still belongs to you and we will credit the photo to your name once prizes have been determined.


We appreciate ALL tree photos. When you submit a photo, it means a tree made you stop and really behold it, and that is something special, a moment in time you capture and share with us. We really do mean it when we say we are grateful for everyone who participates in this contest because it's a chance for us to share our love for and respect of trees.

Prizes will be announced here on Arbor Day, 2021 - April 30th

Prize trees can be planted in the name of the winner or someone of their choosing. Winners will receive an email by May 2nd with details about how to redeem their prize. Prizes must be redeemed within one year.
