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 at www.norfolk.gov.uk/jubileetrees and the packs will be ready for collection in the planting season between December 2022-February 2023.
We are being encouraged to do something positive for new habitats for wildlife, help tackling the challenges of climate change and help towards the net zero carbon goals which are part of NCC’s Environmental Policy.
This is part of the 1 Million Trees for Norfolk project, an initiative to work in partnership with communities, landowners, agencies, businesses and individuals across the county to enable one million trees to be planted over five years. In the 2021/22 planting season, nearly 45,000 trees were planted.
