Chorleywood is one of many places across the country that will see new trees planted all over to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year.
The Queen’s Green Canopy, founded May 2021, is an initiative from climate charity Cool Earth, the Woodland Trust and the UK Government that hopes to get people across the UK to ‘Plant a Tree for the Jubilee.’
The project will see Three Rivers District Council plant more than 700 new trees across the area, including the grounds of Chorleywood House.
This huge undertaking has been supported by tree nursery Herts Native Trees, who have donated twenty trees to the enterprise.
Cllr Sarah Nelmes, the Leader of Three Rivers District Council, said:
“Protecting and enhancing our environment is at the forefront of our agenda here in Three Rivers, and so what better way could there be to mark the Queen’s 70 years on the throne than by planting hundreds of trees across our beautiful district?
“It is a fitting tribute to Her Majesty’s years of service, and also helps sustain our countryside and green spaces for generations to come.”
A commemorative plaque will appear next to the planting spots with the nationwide project encouraging people to create a legacy to benefit the future, in tribute to the Queen’s 70-year-long reign.
Queen’s Green Canopy hope even individuals will get involved, planting trees between October and March in the run up to the big jubilee celebrations set to happen next year.
