The Queen's Green Canopy - Plant a Tree for the Jubilee

Woodland Trust

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."

Community groups (residents' associations, Scout and Girl-guiding groups, youth and sports clubs, Rotary Clubs etc) are encouraged to get involved in Planting a Tree for the Platinum Jubilee in celebration of The Queen's 70 years of Service to the Nation.

The Woodland Trust will be giving away 3 million saplings free of charge to community groups on a first come first served basis.

Information on how to apply for the free saplings will be available through the Woodland Trust website from June 2021.

With a focus on planting sustainably, the QGC will encourage planting of trees to create a legacy in honour of The Queen's leadership of the Nation, which will benefit future generations.

As well as inviting the planting of new trees, The Queen's Green Canopy 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.
