We are excited to announce the launch of the brand new Edmond Tree
Awards, Urban Forestry’s restructured awards program. We have built this
program with the objectives of greater community engagement,
recognition of outstanding urban forestry projects and support of
programs, and enhancement of the urban forest here in Edmond.
The new awards program incorporates multiple facets that range from
simple social media contests to awards for volunteer engagement, tree
planting projects, and commercial landscaping. With so many options,
there is an opportunity for everyone to get involved in some way!
We will be rolling out the different awards throughout the next year, but to kick things off we would like to announce the first introduction of the program… A Fall Foliage Photo Contest! Everyone loves a beautiful photo of trees changing colors in the fall. The submitted photo that receives the most “likes” through the duration of the contest on the Edmond Urban Forestry Facebook page will win its photographer a tree! Entries will open in October, and award recipients must live within Edmond City Limits. Keep up with us on Facebook to find out more information about the contest and to learn about additional categories of the Edmond Tree Awards, as they are announced.
