Commemorating your contribution to The Queen’s Green Canopy is a wonderful way to celebrate the planting of Jubilee trees which will mark the occasion for generations to come.
The QGC is offering a physical, as well as a virtual commemorative plaque option, in keeping with an environmental initiative. Whether you choose to install a physical plaque or unveil a virtual one, we would encourage everyone who has planted trees to upload their Jubilee trees to the QGC MAP and become part of the digital legacy of green canopy projects to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.
While there are no specific criteria to determine the installation of a physical plaque, the QGC would encourage people to consider a physical plaque option for large scale planting projects.
The QGC has worked with suppliers across the United Kingdom to develop plaques which are of a standard design and are available in a range of sizes and prices (links below). Please note QGC plaques should be freestanding and NOT be fixed to trees or tree guards. Permission from local authorities may be required prior to installation in public places.
Individuals who are planting single saplings in private gardens may wish to consider the virtual plaque option, which is available through the interactive QGC Map.
From the 1st of October, members of the public will be able to pin their Jubilee trees to the QGC Map.
Once a pin has been added, users will receive a digital plaque which can be shared online to recognise the planting and inspire others to get involved.
Please see below a list of suggested suppliers and options to consider. Following the links below will open a form where enquiries can be made for purchasing QGC plaques. In keeping with the Welsh Language Act, all suppliers can provide a Welsh-English bilingual version of plaques upon request.
If you would like to use a local plaque supplier, you can download the plaque template here to give to the supplier of your choice.
This template is provided for the purposes of having QGC plaques made only.
Please note we are unable to provide a list of local suppliers.
During the tree planting season from October to March, you can add your tree to The Queen's Green Canopy map. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and the then Prince of Wales planted the first tree in the grounds of Windsor Castle in March 2021, to mark the launch of the QGC initiative.Explore the map
