The city of Brentwood will accept entries through June 15 for the Brentwood's Best Ash contest.

The contest will award up to $1,500 for residents who submit photos of Ash trees as well as the locations of the trees.

The purpose of the contest is to track the number of Ash trees in the city to determine which ones are affected by the emerald ash borer.

“We need your help to spread the word about the contest but more importantly [about] the devastation caused by the emerald ash borer," Brentwood Tree Board member Brian Evans said in a release. "We encourage you to look around the community and your property for ash trees, which would be helpful information for the city of Brentwood to know for the future.”

Individual entries will be judged by the quality and creativity of the photo, as well as the number of locations submitted.


Entries can be submitted here.
