Plant a tree: The Queen’s Green Canopy

The Queen’s Green Canopy

All across the United Kingdom, people are being encouraged to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee” through The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) initiative.

Throughout Her reign, The Queen has planted more than 1,500 trees all over the world and has spoken alongside Sir David Attenborough of the importance of trees in Earth’s future. The Platinum Jubilee will offer an opportunity for people to unite in celebration of The Queen’s lifetime of service in support of the United Kingdom and the wider Commonwealth. Everyone is encouraged to take part in creating this special gift to Her Majesty by planting and celebrating trees.

The QGC website offers advice including when to plant, how to choose what tree to plant and how to plant.

Once you have planted your tree please “Pin your Jubilee tree” to the Queen’s Green Canopy map.

Do you have surplus saplings or young trees, perhaps heeled in waiting for an ideal planting spot to be identified, growing on in a pot, or growing in the ground but waiting to be moved? If yes…..please take a photo of the saplings/young trees you are happy to donate and email your photos (with details of what they are!) to our webmaster. If you don’t already have an email address for our webmaster please contact us and our webmaster be in touch.

Have you identified a location to plant a tree and need a suitable tree? If yes….please keep an eye on this page. Any photos received will be published in a gallery. If you would like to arrange to collect one of the saplings/young trees please contact us to ask us to pass your details on to the person who has offered to donate the sapling/young tree to enable you both to agree a handover!

Once you have planted your tree please “Pin your Jubilee tree” to the Queen’s Green Canopy map.
