Reimagining the Levels has been contacted by the Somerset Organisers of this project and asked if we could identify ways to support it.
To celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, a tree planting initiative is being planned for the planting season of 2021-2022.
The Queen’s Green Canopy will create a network of individual trees, avenues, copses and whole woodlands in honour of The Queen’s service and the legacy she has built.
This will create a green legacy of its own, with every tree planted bringing benefits for people, wildlife and climate, now and for the future. As well as encouraging the planting of new trees, the project will also help to protect Ancient Woodland through identifying 70 individual ancient trees.
We think it’s a great idea and would urge Community Groups, neighbourhood forums or individual landowners to get involved.
There is planned a Queen’s Green Canopy interactive national map where your trees will be shown and you can also order an official plaque to commemorate your plantings.
