The Queen's Green Canopy

The Queen's Green Canopy The Platinum Jubilee 2022

What is the Queen’s Green Canopy

The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a tree planting initiative to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022. With a focus on planting sustainably, everyone from individuals to community groups across the United Kingdom are invited to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.

How Can you Get Involved?

Everyone in Surrey Heath is welcomed to get involved and enhance our local environment by planting trees. The first official planting season will run between October 2021 to March 2022 and will commence again in October 2022, through to the end of the Jubilee year. 
 
Once planted, trees can be added to the Queen’s Green Canopy Map
 
We will be hosting events relating to the Queen’s Green Canopy so keep an eye on our website and social media to find out more.
