Great Oaks of Barrington contest deadline Friday

By

Barrington Area Conservation Trust staff and judges are preparing to pore over Great Oaks of Barrington Contest entries and visit the most beautiful oaks in the area to select five winning trees based on condition, location, form, classic beauty and personal stories.

The contest entry deadline is Friday, April 12. Winners will be announced Earth Week. The top five will receive a special plaque, a $50 gift certificate, and a one-hour consultation with an oak tree expert.

To request an entry form, please contact Nan Alonso at (847) 387-3149 or nan@bactrust.org.
