Counties and cities

Get involved

Villages, parishes, towns and counties are encouraged to get involved in Planting a Tree for the Platinum Jubilee in celebration of The Queen’s 70 years of Service to the Nation. You may wish to raise funds locally to plant significant trees, avenues or copses. 

Advice on major planting projects should be directed through the Office of the Lord Lieutenant in your County.  

Please see below our PLAN page for advice on the tree planting season (October to March), where to plant and how to secure a healthy tree which is right for your location. 

From October, you can photograph your Jubilee tree and upload it on to the QGC map

You may also wish to order an official plaque to mark the occasion for generations to come. Templates for QGC plaques with suggested wording and recommended suppliers will be available on this site from September 2021 ready for when the tree planting season begins in October.

Councils have a valuable role to play in championing the QGC in their area. There are lots of ways they can get involved including supporting schools, community groups and other facilities, such as care homes and leisure centres, to plant trees; by coordinating activity with town and parish councils to ensure a good spread of new trees; and by working with partners to raise funds to support a local programme.
