The European Tree of the Year 2024 has been titled ‘The Heart of the Garden’ tree from Poland. The 200 year old common beech is situated in the botanical gardens of the University of Wrocław.

In second place is the impressive ‘Weeping Beech of Bayeux’ in Normandy France, which at 160 years old is protected with a huge supporting structure.
