10.03.2020 – At Saturday’s assembly of delegates of the Swiss orienteering association Swiss Orienteering, the organising committee of Swiss O Week 2019 was awarded the «orienteering trees» for the smooth implementation of the major event in the destination Gstaad and thus the development of an new orienteering area.

Swiss Orienteering is granting these «orienteering trees» since 2009. With this symbol, the orienteering association is thanking people or organizations who have made an extraordinary contribution to the sport of orienteering in Switzerland. Swiss O Week was wishing for an apple tree that would give as many years of harvest as possible. On Saturday, however, not a plant, but a kilogram of apples was handed over. The «orienteering tree» will certainly be planted in Gstaad. A regional tree nursery will be supplying it and then it will be planted at a location of the first stage. The community of Saanen has already chosen the exact location as visible on the included map section. However, for the planting campaign taking place, spring must arrive first in the destination Gstaad!
