It is now one of the contenders for European Tree of the Year,

This is a piece from the Newry and Mourne Tourist Board.
Did you know in ancient Greece the leaves of the holm oak were used to tell the future and they were also used to make crowns to honour people...?
If trees could talk we know he'd say, please vote for the #holmoak in Rostrevor! He can't vote himself though - he needs us all to take a moment and vote for him. We could have the best tree in Europe here in Rostrevor, Northern Ireland.
Please share this plea for votes and ask your friends throughout the world to support our campaign. Thanks 😃
