Join the jubilee tree plant

The Woodland Trust is giving everyone across the UK the chance to be part of something big and come together to help transform communities for future generations by helping to plant a million trees in February 2012.

The Woodland Trust conservation charity has set itself the ambitious task of planting a million trees during February to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

It will be part of part of a year of tree planting that will see 6 million trees planted across the UK as part of the Trust’s Jubilee Woods project.

The winter months are the best time of year to plant trees, when they are dormant and the ground is full of moisture to give them a good start before the summer.

Across the UK landowners, communities, schools and organisations have pledged to plant trees in February to help the Trust.

Carol Evans, Director, Woodland Trust Scotland said: “The great news is that everyone can get involved in February and be one in a million.

“Whether it be a 60 acre Diamond wood or a  single tree in your garden, it’s easy to plant trees for the Jubilee and help us reach a million trees in a month!

“Visit the Jubilee Woods website to find out how you can get involved. This is just the start.  Tree planting celebrations will take place across the year with opportunities for everyone to get involved in planting 6 million trees.”
