Get planting and support The Queen’s Green Canopy

Category: Environmental

The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 which invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee.” Tree planting season is officially October to March.

Everyone from individuals to Scout and Girl Guiding groups, villages, cities, counties, schools and corporates will be encouraged to play their part to enhance our environment by planting trees from October, when the tree planting season begins, through to the end of the Jubilee year in 2022.

The Woodland Trust is a partner of the QGC and their Free Trees for Schools and Communities Scheme is a great way to get involved with tree planting. Across 2021 and 2022 they have over three million saplings in tree packs, available on a first come first served basis. Information on how to apply for the free saplings is available through the Woodland Trust website https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/plant-trees/schools-and-communities/.

As so many of our communities have shown, tree planting is an excellent way to bring together people of all ages, faiths and backgrounds to protect our environment.
