Next year marks 70 years of Queen Elizabeth II’s ascension to the throne and, to celebrate the anniversary and create a lasting legacy, a UK-wide tree planting initiative named The Queen’s Green Canopy has been established.
The unique scheme involves inviting people to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee,” with everyone encouraged to plant trees from October – when the tree planting season begins – through to the end of the Jubilee year in 2022.
All local councils and village halls in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough who maintain outdoor green spaces are being invited to short online briefing event on 26 October to learn more about the initiative, how they might take part and how they can potentially gain access to free trees via the Woodland Trust.
Attendees will hear directly from Julie Spence, Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, the Queen’s representative in the County and from Ed Groome at Cambridgeshire County Council who is leading the County’s efforts to embrace and promote this initiative.
