QUEEN'S COMMONWEALTH CANOPY

Our governors have been busy - thanks again to John Gillard who successfully applied to The Woodland Trust as part of The Queen's Commonwealth Canopy for free trees. Some time in October we will receive 5 saplings - a mixture of Hazel, Birch and Rowan ready for planting around school. 

 

What is The Queen's Commonwealth Canopy?

The Queen's Commonwealth Canopy project was launched in 2015 when an appeal was made to all 53 Commonwealth nations to contribute areas of indigenous forest to be preserved in perpetuity to mark Her Majesty's lifetime of service to the Commonwealth. The Queen's Commonwealth Canopy is creating a better future for wildlife and people. The saplings we plant will help them reach their target of planting 64 million trees by 2025.

 

The UK Government has announced that The National Forest Company is committed to supporting The Queen's Commonwealth Canopy and will play a leading role as an international exemplar for the QCC. The National Forest Company leads the creation of The National Forest, a new, wooded landscape for the nation across 200 square miles of central England.
