Her Majesty the Queen's Representative in County Down

The Queen's Green Canopy was launched on Monday 17th May and is a countrywide scheme to plant millions of trees over the next few years across the country. For further details see the link below:-

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 Girl guiding groups, villages, cities, counties, schools and corporates will be encouraged to play their part to enhance our environment by planting trees from October, when the tree planting season begins, through to the end of the Jubilee year in 2022. 

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.

   Part of the plan is that we will plant a tree @ a primary school in every city in the United Kingdom. The only city in County Down is Newry & the plan is to plant a tree in October 2021 @ the Windsor Hill Primary School.
