The Queen’s Green Canopy - plant a tree for the jubilee
The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a unique, tree planting initiative that has been launched to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022. With a focus on planting sustainably, QGC is a national project which will encourage the planting of trees to create a legacy in honour of The Queen’s 70 years on the throne, to benefit current and future generations.
Anyone can get involved by planting a tree during the forthcoming planting season which runs from October 2021 until March 2022. There is plenty of planting advice and tips on the QGC website for both the novice and the more green fingered gardener to ensure the best choice of healthy native trees, that will thrive in their environments.
Planting trees is a practical and positive step to take to tackle climate change, as trees produce oxygen and help remove harmful carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, while creating beautiful, uplifting outdoor environment and providing new habitats for wildlife.
From October 2021 you can add your Jubilee tree to the QGC map.
As well as inviting the planting of new trees, QGC will dedicate a network of 70 ancient woodlands across the UK and identify 70 ancient trees to celebrate Her Majesty’s 70 years of service.
