These will be donated to local schools, community projects and customers, all of whom will be encouraged to add their trees to the Queen’s Green Canopy Project, a unique tree planting initiative across the United Kingdom, created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.

Customers are invited to fill out a form on the Beetham Nurseries website in order to receive a free sapling, which will include where they will plant the tree and why that place is special to that person or community.

Beetham Nurseries will then collate these entries to display, so that customers can see where the trees are planted across the region.
