Trees In Action Photo Contest

***The submission deadline has been extended until September 20th!

The trees in our community are constantly working to provide a wide variety of benefits every day. Through the new Trees in Action Photo Contest, Urban Forestry wants to see residents' perspectives of our local trees doing what they do best.

To enter, participants will submit a photo that visually illustrates a tree providing a specific benefit that trees provide. The theme for the 2018 Trees in Action Contest is "Shade".

See below for more information about the contest and rules.

How do I take a photo of a "tree in action"?


Urban Forestry encourages creativity in entries! Trees are providing all types of benefits all the time, but entries should illustrate the impact of that benefit. In example, rather than showing a tree by itself in a field for the benefit of “shade”, show the shade benefit being experienced by someone/something. How does shade impact your life? Energy savings, or a cool place to sit and reflect? Pay attention to the details and be creative! We look forward to seeing the ideas that participants come up with.
