The Bruine Kriekpeer is the ‘Belgian Tree of the Year 2022’

With a remarkable 1565 votes, the Bruine Kriekpeer of Klerken won Belgian Baillet Latour Tree of the Year 2022, followed by the Zomereik of Lanaken with 1159 votes and the Moerascipres of Ename with 1118 votes. The story of the Bruine Kriekpeer is closely linked to the village in which it is located, Klerken. This West Flanders village used to host a perelaarommegang where pears were donated to visitors. Today, there is still a legacy of this custom, as there is a street named: perelaarommegang, after the procession of the same name. Some inhabitants of Klerken would like to revive the tradition and recently took the initiative to organize the procession again. The tree will now receive some €2500 for its care and revival, may bear the title "Belgian Tree of the Year" for one year, and will represent Belgium in the European Tree of the Year competition to be organized in 2023.
