Supporting the Queen’s Green Canopy

Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, 1926 – 2022

Following the wishes of His Majesty The King, The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) initiative has been extended to the end of March 2023 to enable people across the country the opportunity to plant trees in memory and to honour Her Majesty, the Queen.

We are proud to continue to support this initiative and are inviting our communities to plant a tree in memory of the Queen.

Planting season takes place from October to March 2023. Town and parish councils are encouraged to plant trees and schools, community groups and clubs invited to apply for free saplings from The Woodland Trust, available on a first come first served basis. Find out more and apply by visiting The Woodland Trust.

Have you already planted a tree? Make sure that you register this on the official website to ensure that this is displayed on the interactive map for West Northamptonshire. You can do this by visiting Queen's Green Canopy

As well as inviting the planting of new trees, The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) will dedicate a network of 70 Ancient Woodlands across the United Kingdom and identify 70 Ancient Trees to celebrate Her Majesty’s 70 years of service.

For more information and how to get involved visit Queen’s Green Canopy.

See the planting advice video from former Northamptonshire High Sheriff, Paul Parsons.
