The ‘plant a tree for the Jubilee’ initiative was launched nationwide on Monday 17 May and will see the planting of millions of trees and saplings in commemoration of HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.
It is also designed to be a major boost to the environment during the worldwide climate emergency.
Everyone from individuals and community groups to schools and businesses are encouraged to plant saplings which will be provided free by the Woodland Trust. Urban areas, care homes and historic sites will also be considered for the planting, which takes place from October this year and throughout the Jubilee year of 2022.
Copses and individual specimen trees may also be planted on private land. In addition, current trees and woodlands of significant interest will be identified and signed with plaques for future generations.
Major donors and partners UK wide are being brought on board and there will be a local fundraising campaign to supplement the provision of free saplings. There will also be the opportunity to sponsor a tree in a person’s memory.
