The Queen’s Green Canopy

"Plant a Tree for the Jubilee"


All across the United Kingdom, people are being encouraged to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee” through The Queen’s Green Canopy initiative.

The project will see all Counties of the UK being invited to create a network of individual or specimen trees, tree avenues, copses and woodlands in honour of Her Majesty’s 70 years of service to the Nation. As well as inviting people to plant new trees, existing woodland will also be dedicated to the QGC by erecting commemorative plaques to mark the occasion and preserve forests for the future, in The Queen’s name.

A National Tree Initiative

The Queen’s Green Canopy is a nationwide drive to plant trees where individuals, groups, businesses, and whole towns and cities will arm themselves with the knowledge and know-how to plant up thousands of trees to mark The Queen’s Jubilee.

Cool Earth is proud to host the Queen’s Green Canopy, helping people in the UK protect their local environment in the fight against the climate crisis.

We believe that carbon capturing, wildlife-homing, rain-making trees keep our planet and climate in balance.

Whether you live in the Peruvian rainforest, the city of London, or the Cornish coast, tree-based conservation is the smartest climate action you can take.

The campaign will see communities, charities, schools, scout groups, councils and landowners planting trees across the four nations to create a lasting legacy in honour of The Queen’s leadership of the Nation, that will enhance our environment and the landscape, for generations to come. The campaign will encourage the planting of healthy native trees that will thrive in their environments.

Throughout Her reign, The Queen has planted more than 1,500 trees all over the world and has spoken alongside Sir David Attenborough of the importance of trees in Earth’s future. The Platinum Jubilee will offer an opportunity for people to unite in celebration of The Queen’s lifetime of service in support of the United Kingdom and the wider Commonwealth.

The global Covid-19 pandemic has been a challenging time which has profoundly changed the lives of all British citizens and generated a much greater public awareness of the need for green space. The Queen’s Green Canopy will encourage people to come together with the common purpose of “greening” their local and national environments. Everyone is encouraged to take part in creating this special gift to Her Majesty by planting, and celebrating, trees at home, and within their community, through their local Government or County programmes.

The Queen’s Green Canopy launched on 17 May 2021.
