Suffragette oak wins Scottish Tree of the Year

Last Updated:  16/12/2015

The Suffragette Oak in Kelvingrove Park won a public vote from six trees that were shortlisted in the contest, which is organised by the Woodland Trust Scotland and supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The oak was planted on April 20 1918 by a number of suffrage organisations to mark women being granted the right to vote earlier that year.

It will now go up against trees from fifteen other countries, all vying to become 2016 European Tree of the Year.
