The Queen's Green Canopy

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

The aim of The Queen’s Green Canopy is to thank Her Majesty The Queen for her exceptional service, celebrate her Platinum Jubilee and promote the importance of trees to the environment through the encouragement of tree planting and tree preservation across the nation. It is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, by inviting people to “Plant Trees for the Jubilee”. With a focus on planting sustainably, the Queen’s Green Canopy will encourage the planting of trees to create a legacy in honour of The Queen’s leadership of the Nation, which will benefit future generations.

Everyone is encouraged to “Plant a tree for the Jubilee” – specimens, fruit trees, hedges, copses and woods. The planting season will be October 2021 to March 2022. The Woodland Trust are supplying 3 million trees for schools, youth groups and local communities and applications are now open at https://queensgreencanopy.org/get-involved/communities-and-groups/ Saplings will be posted to those who apply on a first come, first served basis. Trees are also available to purchase from The Woodland Trust, or local suppliers, and advice about planting your trees is also available online. From October, details of your Jubilee tree(s) can be uploaded, together with a photograph on to the Queen’s Green Canopy map https://queensgreencanopy.org/map-education-hub/qgc-map/#/ Official plaques to mark the occasion for generations to come will be available to order online from September.

If you require any further information or wish a representative of the Lieutenancy to attend your planting, please contact Alex Cairncross, Deputy Lieutenant for Perth and Kinross who will be happy to help - Mob: 07771 566429 or Email: alex@alexcairncross.co.uk Please also let Alex know of your plans, so that a record of tree planting in Perth and Kinross can be kept. Engagement with the press is also encouraged.
