Get involved

Everyone should be able to get involved in Planting a Tree for the Platinum Jubilee in celebration of The Queen’s 70 years of Service to the Nation. Whether you are a seasoned gardener or a complete novice, we will guide you through the process of planting trees so that they survive and flourish for years to come.

If you wish to plant a tree in your garden to commemorate the Platinum Jubilee, we recommend you order a tree/trees from a certified Plant Healthy nursery in your area. 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 add your Jubilee tree to the QGC map.

You may also wish to mark the occasion with a commemorative plaque. The QGC is offering a physical, as well as a virtual commemorative plaque option, in keeping with an environmental initiative. Please visit our commemorative plaque page for more details.
