'Tree-bilee' unveiled by Prince Charles to celebrate Queen's 70 years on the throne
As someone who has planted more than 1,500 trees during her long reign, the Queen might be considered something of an expert. So it was fitting that she was on hand to cast a careful eye over her eldest son as he launched the Queen’s Green Canopy, a nationwide planting initiative designed to create a lasting legacy to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee. Or, as the Prince of Wales described it, a "Tree-bilee". Everyone from individuals to Scout and Girlguiding groups, villages, cities, counties, schools and businesses will be encouraged to plant trees from October, when the tree planting season begins, through to the end of the Jubilee year in 2022. The initiative launched on Monday to give people time to plan their projects. The Prince said that planting trees was “a statement of hope and faith in the future” – one that the Queen, 95, has approached with gusto for many decades.news.yahoo.com
