The Queen’s Green Canopy

The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is something you can get involved in right now.   It’s a unique tree planting initiative which invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee.”

In Rutland. we would like to encourage everyone – from individuals, community groups, schools, and local businesses – to play their part in the celebrations by planting trees. 

We are hoping to plant 40,000 British grown trees – one for each person living in Rutland – from October, when the tree planting season begins, through to the end of the Jubilee celebrations in 2022. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to come together as a community, to reduce our impact on climate change, and protect and enhance our county for generations to come.

We would love you to send us photographs of your tree planting event, and once planted, you can pin your tree’s location on the Queen’s Green Canopy Map.   For more information, please click here.
