Trees are essential for our life and an important link between past, present and future. They temper the summer heat, help us to take a deep breath and stabilize the climate. Therefore, we should protect and care for them. The European Tree of the Year contest highlights the importance of trees and connects communities across Europe for 14 years now. Please, help us with our mission so that the benefits of Europe's trees can be enjoyed by future generations. Every tree matters. So does your support. Please donate for trees now.
