Green Canopy – The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

“In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, seventy years of service, having acceded to the throne on 6th February 1952 when Her Majesty was 25 years old. There will be year-long Platinum Jubilee celebrations throughout the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and around the world as communities come together to celebrate The Queen’s historic reign. An extended bank holiday, from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June, will provide an opportunity for communities and people throughout the United Kingdom to come together to celebrate the historic milestone. The four days of celebrations will include public events and community activities, as well as national moments of reflection on The Queen’s 70 years of service.

The Queen’s Green Canopy – “Plant a Tree for the 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.

The Lord-Lieutenant for Perth and Kinross would like to invite the people of Perth and Kinross to participate in The Queen’s Green Canopy and to “Plant a tree for the Jubilee”. Any tree planting being done on private land between October 2021 to March 2022 or October to December 2022 can be included in this initiative.

The Woodland Trust are very generously making 3 million saplings available for schoolchildren, youth groups, local organisations, and community groups to plant. Trees can be ordered online at https://queensgreencanopy.org/ Trees may also be purchased directly from The Woodland Trust or from local suppliers.

More information can be found on the official website for The Queen’s Green Canopy at https://queensgreencanopy.org/. From October, details and photographs of trees planted for the jubilee can be upload 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.
