Submissions to exhibit a tree are now closed and we are very pleased to say that we have received a record number of entries this year.    It will take a couple of weeks to make the selections and get back to you.     Whilst the response has been fantastic the other side to this is that a number of trees will not be chosen for exhibition as obviously we have a finite number of display spaces.    If you have submitted a tree that is not chosen there is a bigger picture to look at.    It may just be that the tree needs a few more years of growth; it may be that we have received many submissions of that species or style.     We take into account a number of things when choosing and you should not feel rejected.     Bear in mind that we are a National show and have entries from all over the country so it may be that you should just be proud that you stepped up and put in a submission for a show of this type.    There are other shows to consider as well but we hope that you would still think of us in the future.     We truly appreciate all of you for supporting us so well this year.     Thank you.
