In December we announced that we were hunting for a venerable ash to feature as the frontispiece for The New Sylva – read more.
We’ve been overcome by the number of fantastic ash trees submitted by dozens of people across the country. Thank you to everyone who took part.
After reviewing all the photographs and accompanying information submitted we are delighted to announce the name of the person who submitted the chosen tree:
Katherine has a dream job as PAWS Development Officer for the Woodland Trust. The tree she submitted is growing in Herefordshire but for now we are not revealing it.
When the authors have visited the tree sometime in the next few weeks, we will add a post here, showing both the tree and the beginnings of Sarah’s drawing.
Thank you again to all those who helped. We are still looking for a jay feather and may yet have other opportunities to get involved in The New Sylva – see help wanted for the latest news.
