Mitcham is home to Merton’s favourite tree

The Tree Warden Group Merton organises an annual competition to find Merton’s Favourite Tree.

The 2015 winner was recently announced. It is a foxglove tree in London Road Playing Fields – what we locally call Barons Fields.

There were about 40 entrants to this competition from across the borough, and each one was assessed and photographed by the Tree Wardens Group.

If you want to nominate a tree for the next round of awards, use the entry form – Favourite_Tree_Nomination_Form. Closing date is mid September.
