Plant a Tree for the Jubilee

Planting a tree

As part of the celebrations everyone in the UK is being encouraged to plant a tree for the jubilee to create the Queen's Green Canopy. Anyone can take part, including individuals, companies, villages, cities, counties, schools, Scout and Girl Guide groups, and other organisations.

The tree planting will improve our environment and create a legacy to honour the Queen. The initiative began in October 2021, when the tree planting season began, and will last through to the end of 2022, the Jubilee Year.

Plant a Tree for the Jubilee: getting started

Tree planted at MHR International

Lord-Lieutenant Sir John Peace helped to plant a tree at MHR International, Ruddington, as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy.   

John Mills, President and Founder of MHR, who holds a Royal Warrant for Supply of Payroll and HR Systems to Her Majesty The Queen, said:

“At MHR we are very proud to play a small role in commemorating The Queen’s 70-year long reign and decades of remarkable devotion to a life of service to the nation. The Queen’s Green Canopy is a wonderful initiative, and we wanted to create a lasting and physical memory of this special occasion  by dedicating a garden to The Queen in the grounds of Ruddington Hall . The planting of the 108th tree will stand proud alongside the many others we’re fortunate to have surrounding us.

“While we take pride in maintaining the MHR grounds, we also take this out into the local community too, making sure our younger generations can also enjoy green spaces. Supported by a team of colleagues, we recently helped to restore the Loughborough-based Rainbows Children Hospice’s Eco Garden at the end of 2021. The project has created a tranquil space in which over 300 children and young people cared for and supported by Rainbows, as well as their families, can reflect, recharge, and enjoy. We’ll soon be undertaking another great project for the hospice by painting the fence in the Remembrance Garden. We do this every year as part of a continuous relationship to maintain the space for the families that use it, and we’ll be back again this September. I’m pleased we can give something back for future generations by supporting these types of sustainable legacies,” added Mr Mills.

Greenfields Community School in Nottingham were gifted a tree from Her Majesty the Queen last year as part of the Queen's Green Canopy.

"We were so proud to have been gifted a tree from The Queen today as part of the ⁦Queen's Green Canopy project."
