This year 2022, Queen Elizabeth is celebrating her Platinum Jubilee. A recognition of her seventy remarkable years of unbroken service as monarch. To mark this unprecedented milestone the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative more affectionately known as the “treebilee” was launched by His Royal Highness Prince Charles the Prince of Wales when he planted an oak sapling in the grounds of Windsor Castle in May 2020. It is hoped that worldwide by the conclusion of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year groups and individuals will celebrate, by planting trees and shrubs in honour of the Queen’s lifetime of service. During her life, it is believed, the Queen herself has planted in excess of 1500 trees. A significant contribution to extending our green canopy.
