The Queen’s Jubilee campaign, The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) was launched in May this year. 

It is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 and invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a tree for the Jubilee.” 

Everyone is encouraged to play their part during the official planting season between October to March.
