Earlier this year I photographed the “Tree of Trees” sculpture for the Queen’s Jubilee celebration. Designed by Heatherwick Studio, the “Tree of Trees” is one part of a national community campaign to plant more trees and inspire the next generation of tree planters, led by the Queen’s Green Canopy.
Last Friday I was asked by The Queen’s Green Canopy to capture the planting of a tiny forest in Enfield. The local community and council braved the cold conditions to join the Queen’s Green Canopy and Earthwatch Europe to plant 600 trees at Alma Road Recreation Ground.
The Queen’s Green Canopy is proud to be creating a living legacy with over a million trees planted in Her Majesty’s name across the nation.
The Queen’s Green Canopy is an inclusive national initiative, meaning that everyone from across the United Kingdom can get involved. Whether you’re an individual hoping to plant a single sapling in your garden, a scout group planting a large tree or a City Council intending to plant a whole avenue of trees to honour The Queen, the below pages will provide the information you need to plan and deliver your project.
The Queen’s Green Canopy is a not-for-profit initiative with the aim to raise funds that will go towards planting trees and creating green spaces in deprived urban areas and schools across the United Kingdom.
With your support, we can plant trees across the nation to benefit our natural wildlife, provide cleaner air, slow the impact of climate change and improve general health and wellbeing.
