The Queen calls for trees to be planted

“Green canopy”: under this motto, Queen Elizabeth is committed to more green on the island. Together with Prince Charles, the monarch planted the first tree.

Windsor (AP) – Before the 70th anniversary of the throne of the British Queen Elizabeth II (95), the palace called on the population to plant trees. Schools, communities, nurseries and companies can participate in The Queen’s Green Canopy program – in German, for example: the Queen’s green canopy.

The Queen had already planted the first tree together with son and heir to the throne Prince Charles (72) on the grounds of Windsor Castle near London, the Royal Family announced on Monday. In addition, the palace tweeted a photo of the two – it shows the Queen in rubber boots, a headscarf and green coat and Prince Charles in a light brown coat. The anniversary is on February 6, 2022.

The project, which runs from the beginning of the planting season in October until the end of 2022, is also intended to identify 70 irreplaceable, old forests and 70 old trees across the country, as well as a pilot program for training unemployed young people. Schools and community groups can apply for three million free seedlings.

In a video message, Charles asked to plant a tree for the “tree-bilee” – a play on words made up of the English words “tree” (tree) and “jubilee” (anniversary). “It is very important that more of the right species of trees are planted in the right places and that there are more forests, avenues, hedges and hedge trees and urban planting plans, while at the same time ensuring that we protect and preserve those that already exist” said the Queen’s son. Planting a tree is a “statement of hope and trust in the future” and at the same time the cheapest way to protect the earth.
