Free Trees for Your School Via the Queens Green Canopy

Free Trees for Your School Via the Queens Green Canopy

To mark Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, a tree planting initiative named ‘The Queens Green Canopy’ has been created which invites people from across the United Kingdom to plant a tree for the Jubilee.

The initiative welcomes everyone including individuals, Scout and Girlguiding groups, villages, cities, counties, schools and corporates to take part in enhancing our environment by planting trees from October when the tree planting season begins, through to the end of the Jubilee Year in 2022.

When Can You Apply?

You can apply for free tree saplings via the Woodland Trust from June 2021. The trees are available on a first come, first serve basis so make sure you make a note in your diary to apply as soon as you can to secure trees for your school or organisation.

The Queens Green Canopy will be contacting as many UK state schools as possible to arrange the delivery of free trees.

How Many Trees are Available?

The number of trees available depends on the number of donations the initiative receives so be sure to get in quick.
