Supporting the Queen’s Green Canopy

We are  supporting the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative by inviting people to plant a tree to mark the 70th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession to the throne in 2022.

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 through their website for planting from October to March. Across 2021 and 2022 The Woodland Trust have over three million saplings in tree packs, available on a first come first served basis. Find out more and apply by visiting The Woodland Trust.

Arrangements are also getting under way by the Council to celebrate the Queen’s Green Canopy with a range of further local tree-planting initiatives in the run-up to next year’s Jubilee celebrations, and residents will be kept informed and updated as these activities take shape.

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.
