The Noble Tree Foundation and Hatcher Garden and Woodland Preserve sponsor the Best Noble Tree Contest for members of the community to find a big or favorable tree in Spartanburg County. The contest is a way to educate school children and the community about the importance of Noble Trees and will be a great resource to locate Spartanburg’s largest and most notable specimen trees. The nominated trees must be located in Spartanburg County and the organizations will be accepting nominations until April 15, 2022. The winner will be announced at the Twilight in the Garden Event planned for May 2022. Click here to learn more details about participating in the contest.
