Communities and Groups

Get involved

Community groups (residents’ associations, Scout and Girlguiding groups, youth and sports clubs, Rotary Clubs etc) are encouraged to get involved in planting trees to honour The Queen.

The Woodland Trust is a partner of the QGC and their Free Trees for Schools and Communities Scheme is a great way to get involved in tree planting, with packs available on a first come first served basis. Information on how to apply for the free saplings is available through the Woodland Trust website.

The Conservation Volunteers also have a great number of free trees available to support community groups to be part of The Queen’s Green Canopy – applications for free trees can be made here. For trees in Northern Ireland, please follow this link.
