Kippford’s Beloved Hawthorne Shortlisted For Tree Of The Year

The very much photographed Hawthorn tree by shell beach at Kippford, Dalbeattie, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland has been shortlisted in the final 10 tree’s in the Woodland Trusts ‘Tree of the Year 2021’ Competition, and the wee Dumfries and Galloway Thorn needs your vote to win!

The tree is described as – A lonesome but fiercely proud hawthorn still managing to guard the coastline despite being battered by the elements is a fine example of a mature tree. And while not spectacular in size it cuts a striking presence in an unusual setting and is equally as important as more imposing specimens.
