Trees SC recognizes individuals, organizations and municipalities for their contribution to the urban forests in South Carolina. Trees SC has two awards: the Golden Acorn Award and the annual Heritage Tree Award. Nominations are accepted annually, and winners are announced at the Trees SC Annual Conference in October. Please contact us for further information.
Golden Acorn Award
Trees SC presents the Golden Acorn Award that recognizes professionals and volunteers for their contribution to our state’s urban and community forests, as well as community organizations, local governments, universities and colleges, corporations, and state agencies that provide exemplary leadership and vision to a comprehensive urban forestry program.
Heritage Tree Award
Annually, the Heritage Tree Award, which is sponsored by Bartlett Tree Experts, identifies, celebrates and recognizes remarkable trees in South Carolina. Either nominated individually or as part of a group, these trees are recognized by their historical and/or cultural significance to the community.
