The Queen’s Green Canopy – “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”
The aim of The Queen’s Green Canopy is to thank Her Majesty The Queen for her exceptional service,
celebrate her Platinum Jubilee, and promote the importance of trees to the environment through the
encouragement of tree planting and tree preservation across the nation. It is a unique tree planting initiative
created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, by inviting people to “Plant Trees for the Jubilee”.
With a focus on planting sustainably, the Queen’s Green Canopy will encourage the planting of trees to
create a legacy in honour of The Queen’s leadership of the Nation, which will benefit future generations. At a
time of such concern for our planet and the climate, the planting of individual trees, woods large and small
and hedges will go some way to addressing those issues and promote wildlife and biodiversity.
The Lord-Lieutenant for Clackmannanshire would like to invite the people of the county to participate in The
Queen’s Green Canopy and to “Plant a tree for the Jubilee”. Any tree planting being done on private land
between October 2021 to March 2022 or October to December 2022 can be included in this positive and
The Woodland Trust are very generously making 3 million saplings available for schoolchildren, youth

local suppliers for individuals or private companies and included in the Green Canopy.
