03 Jan The Queen’s Green Canopy Update – Memorial Tree Planting for Her Majesty
Following the death of Her Majesty The Queen and the wishes of His Majesty King Charles, The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) initiative will be extended to the end of March 2023 to now give people the joint opportunity to both plant trees in memoriam to honour Her Majesty and reduce their carbon footprint.
As a nationwide initiative created to mark the Platinum Jubilee, the QGC was due to conclude in December – the end of the Jubilee year. However, as the official tree planting season in the United Kingdom is from October to March, the initiative will now be extended to include the full tree planting season, beginning in October 2022 and concluding in March 2023.
The Queen’s Green Canopy is proud to be creating a living legacy with over a million trees planted in Her Majesty’s name across the nation during the first planting season, October 2021 to March 2022. The extension of the QGC initiative will build on this legacy and serve as a lasting tribute to Her Majesty’s extraordinary service to her country and her people.
The interactive map created by The Queen’s Green Canopy to showcase the planting projects across the United Kingdom will also continue to the end of March 2023, giving people an opportunity to be part of this special legacy.
The Shropshire Lieutenancy together with Shropshire Council and Telford & Wrekin Council are supporting The Queen’s Green Canopy and would love to see as many individuals, companies, schools, community groups, parishes and landowners planting trees across the county and registered on the QGC map in memory of our late Majesty.
