Spring 2022 Trees of Campus Contest

Contest Details

Do you have a favourite tree? Is it a beautiful arbutus tree, blue spruce or monkey puzzle tree? Or, is it the tree that you climbed as a child, ate picnics under or passed by every day on your way to work? We want to know about your favourite tree and why it holds a place in your heart!

Enter the Branchlines Favourite Tree Contest on Instagram by using the hashtag #BranchlinesFavouriteTreeContest and tag @UBCForestry on your photos or email it to forestry.alumni@ubc.ca. The winner will be awarded a $100 VISA gift card.

UBC Forestry will always ask for permission before sharing any submitted photos.
