I have long thought that it would be great to have a tree to represent every county across Britain. Have your say in an online survey.
I’m sure that we would all have different views as to what tree should represent a county. Some may be obvious, others more obscure:
- the last of our mature English Elms to represent East Sussex
- sweet apple for Herefordshire
- rowan for Dyfed
- Scots pine for Grampian
- pear for Gloucestershire
- Sitka spruce for Northumberland …?
Maybe these are too obvious, so why not have your say? I’ve created a simple online survey using Survey Monkey called A tree for every British county.
To keep it simple the survey allows users to select just one tree for a county at a time. Feel free to take part in the survey as many times as you wish, selecting a different county each time though please!
I have ideas for using the results in a couple of novel ways and will publish the results here of course. I’ll keep the survey open for a while with the hope that this will attract more interest.
