This year the nation will be celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. To mark this occasion people across the UK are being invited to plant trees in an initiative called ‘The Queen’s Green Canopy’.
To support our local environment and to honour the monarch’s 70-year reign we will be giving away 70 trees during the year to local residents, schools and community groups.
We will launch our tree give away in June, to coincide with the Queen’s celebrations. We will provide details of how to apply for a tree and we will liaise with you to find the right species for the space you have available. Trees will be delivered from a certified nursery at the start of the tree planting season in October.
We are taking advice from Surrey Wildlife Trust to maximise biodiversity and provide the appropriate tree species for the local area.
Look out for more information in our June Newsletter so that you can take part and plant a tree for the Jubilee!
