The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 which invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.

Everyone from individuals to Scout and Girlguiding groups, villages, cities, counties, schools and corporates will be encouraged to play their part to enhance our environment by planting trees during the official planting season between October to March. Tree planting will commence again in October 2022, through to the end of the Jubilee year.

With a focus on planting sustainably, the QGC will encourage planting of trees to create a legacy in honour of The Queen’s leadership of the Nation, which will benefit future generations.

As well as inviting the planting of new trees, The Queen’s Green Canopy will dedicate a network of 70 Ancient Woodlands across the United Kingdom and identify 70 Ancient Trees to celebrate Her Majesty’s 70 years of service.

The Queen’s Green Canopy is an inclusive national initiative, meaning that everyone from across the United Kingdom can get involved.

  • A Platinum School Tree: on school grounds involving students and teachers. 


We planted this Hazel in our garden in Chulmleigh on 30th November as part of National Tree Week for the Queen's Green Canopy


From October, you can add your Jubilee tree to The Queen's Green Canopy map. Her Majesty and The Prince of Wales planted the first Jubilee tree in the grounds of Windsor Castle in March, to mark the launch of the QGC. 


Gift A Tree

The Queen’s Green Canopy is a not-for-profit initiative that aims to raise funds that will go towards planting trees and creating green spaces in deprived urban areas and schools across the UK.

With your support, we can plant trees across the country that will benefit our natural wildlife, provide cleaner air, reduce pollution levels, mitigate the effects of climate change, all whilst celebrating Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.
