The Selkirk Scout Group, with the kind permission and help of Sir Michael Strang Steel, planted a small copse of approximately 40 trees on part of the Scout Field at Philiphaugh Selkirk in commemoration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. This is part of the Queen’s Green Canopy scheme.
Our cops is available to view on the Queen’s Green Canopy map.
More about The Queen’s Green Canopy
Following the wishes of, His Majesty The King, The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) initiative will be extended to the end of March 2023 to give people the opportunity to plant trees in memoriam to honour Her Majesty.
As a nationwide initiative created to mark the Platinum Jubilee, the QGC was due to conclude in December – the end of the Jubilee year. However, as the official tree planting season in the United Kingdom is from October to March, the initiative will now be extended to include the full tree planting season, beginning in October 2022 and concluding in March 2023.
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 during the first planting season, October 2021 to March 2022. The extension of the QGC initiative will build on this legacy and serve as a lasting tribute to Her Majesty’s extraordinary service to her country and her people.
The interactive map created by The Queen’s Green Canopy to showcase the planting projects across the United Kingdom will also continue to the end of March 2023, giving people an opportunity to be part of this special legacy.
