People in West Norfolk are being invited to plant a tree in memory of Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
Jubilee Trees for Norfolk was launched earlier this year to encourage people to “Plant a tree for the Jubilee” supporting the Queen’s Green Canopy.
Norfolk County Council is now relaunching the scheme and hopes that tree planting across Norfolk can offer a long lasting tribute to the monarch.
There are collection points where you can collect a half-price tree pack at King’s Lynn and Fakenham.
You can apply online for one at www.norfolk.gov.uk/jubileetrees and the packs will be ready for collection in the planting season between December 2022-February 2023.
Eric Vardy, the borough councillor responsible for Environment and Waste, said: “Getting involved with Jubilee Trees for Norfolk and supporting the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative will be a lasting legacy across the county and a perfectly poignant tribute to Her Majesty The Queen, the work she did and the causes she championed during her 70 year reign. This will not only help create new habitats for wildlife in Norfolk but also provide a fantastic opportunity for residents and community groups to do something positive for their county.
“It is also a key part of the Norfolk County Council’s response to tackling the challenges of climate change and will help towards our net zero carbon goals as part of our Environmental Policy.”
