Norfolk residents are being invited to plant a tree in memoriam to honour Her 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 a monarch so special to our county and create a legacy to honour her dedicated service of more than 70 years.

The County Council has made half-price tree packs available at seven tree collection points including Norwich (County Hall and Broadland Country Park), Acle, Long Stratton, Watton, Fakenham and King’s Lynn. Residents should apply online for the Jubilee Trees for Norfolk scheme, and the packs will be ready for collection in the planting season between December 2022 and February 2023.

The Jubilee Trees for Norfolk scheme is being funded by Norfolk County Council and the Government through the Trees Outside Woodland project.

It is part of the 1 Million Trees for Norfolk project, an ambitious initiative to work in partnership with communities, landowners, other agencies, businesses and individuals across the county to enable one million trees to be planted over five years.

In the 2021/22 planting season, the 1 Million Trees team enabled nearly 45,000 trees to be planted through a range of innovative projects.
