Vote for the Major Oak

The iconic Major Oak is now involved in its latest epic adventure – with a quest to conquer Europe!

Robin Hood’s famous hideout, the Major Oak, is in the running to be named European Tree of the Year 2015 in a special contest being held by the Environmental Partnership Association.

Voting ends on 28 February so don’t delay, cast your vote today by visiting the European Tree of the Year website.

You can also show your support by using the #VoteMajorOak hashtag on Twitter and Facebook.

Coun John Knight, Committee Chairman for Culture, at Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “The Major Oak touches people’s hearts and their imagination. We were delighted that it won the Woodland Trust’s England Tree of the Year title in December and hope that everyone can get behind our campaign to win this prestigious European title.”

Izi Banton, Nottinghamshire County Council’s Site Manager for Sherwood Forest Country Park, added: “I love its durability and the way people react to it. This tree perhaps like no other captures the imagination instantly and it is this I think, and the part it plays in raising the profile of ancient and special trees, which is why the Major Oak deserves to be European tree of the Year. Please vote Major Oak!”
