Supporting the Queen’s Green Canopy
The Royal Forestry Society is proud to support the Queen’s Green Canopy to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.
Learning and Outreach Manager Becky Wilkinson says: “Her Majesty The Queen is our Patron and we are delighted to be working with partners at the Queen’s Green Canopy to give schoolchildren and young people a real insight into how to plant the right tree in the right place and how to care for it for the future.”
Alongside the Jubilee Junior Foresters Award will be a free RFS guide for schools to planting and caring for trees to help ensure their trees continue to grow for generations to come.
The Queen’s Green Canopy scheme is hosted by climate charity Cool Earth working with a range of partners including Woodland Trust and Trees for Cities.
Former RFS President Prince Charles has described the Jubiliee as a ‘tree-bilee’ and has said it is vital more of the right species of treees are planted, in the right places and that more woodlands, avenues, hedgerows and urban planting schemes should be established, while protecting and sustaining what we already have.
The Queen has herself planted more than 1,500 trees around the world during her reign.
