One of the most original trees in Poland and a showcase of Łódź

As Klub Gaja emphasizes, Oak Fabrykant is one of the most original trees in Poland and a showcase of Łódź. The 180-year-old tree attracts attention with its unusual shape – one of its branches is over 20 meters long and runs almost parallel to the ground. It looks especially beautiful in the spring, against the background of the blue flowering Siberian onion. It is these features that made the oak win the Polish Tree of the Year 2022 competition, organized by the ecological organization Klub Gaja.

– An unusual tree in an unusual place was awarded the title of European Tree of the Year. This success is due to many people for whom nature is of great importance, also in the cultural and historical context. Building social capital around trees is a challenge for all of us – said Jacek Bożek, founder and head of Klub Gaja, after the announcement of the results. And he added: – We cannot leave this work only to the institutions. Also we – citizens should do everything so that future generations can admire the wonders of nature.
