Photographic Competition - Town & Country Trees

To celebrate the splendour of our trees and woodlands the Yorkshire Agricultural Society hosted a photographic competition to encourage people to photograph their favourite urban and rural trees and woodlands in the UK.

Trees are a vital part of our lives.  They give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the worlds wildlife.  Trees absorb pollutants from the air, provide shelter from solar radiation, reduce noise, help slow the rate of global warming, help prevent flooding and soil erosion as well as providing a sustainable and renewable raw material for industry and energy generation.

As well as practical and environmental factors, trees and woodlands provide spectacular scenery and give us plenty of opportunities for leisure activities such as walking, cycling, horse riding, orienteering, camping, caravanning, fishing, bird watching and a whole host of other activities enjoyed by people of all ages. 

There were 2 categories, Town & Country, photos could be either landscape scenes or close up / macro photos, but the main emphasis and focus of the photos should be the trees.

Entries have now closed for 2017.
