Congratulations to the 2014 California Arbor Week Photo Contest Winners! All of the submissions were wonderful, but these two stood out – one for its beauty, the other for its story. A big thanks to all of the photographers who submitted photographs this year. We hope to see more of your work during future California Arbor Week contests.
Trees in My Community Winner
“My Girls in a Tree” by Janie Licosati, Rancho Santa Fe, CA
Janie says, “This is a huge Tipu tree on our street. This tree is the home away from home for my two girls. They play and even color in the tree. They’re up there for hours.”
My Favorite California Tree
“Stand Out” by Thomas Wagner, Olivehurst, CA
Thomas says, “It stands out above the rest. This oak tree is large and in charge and dwarfs its neighbors.”
Congratulations, Janie and Thomas! Your photos and their stories are wonderful.
