Generals plant 68,000 trees to honour the Queen's Platinum Jubilee

Trees will be planted during the official planting season between October and March to mark the monarch’s 70 years of service.

Generals at Montgomery House in Aldershot are set to plant 68,000 trees – a tree for every Army cadet – as part of the Queen's Green Canopy scheme.

The Queen's Green Canopy (QGC) is a unique tree-planting initiative created to mark the monarch's Platinum Jubilee in 2022, inviting people from across the UK to 'Plant a Tree for the Jubilee'.

With a focus on planting sustainably, the QGC encourages the planting of trees to create a legacy in honour of the Queen's leadership of the nation, which will benefit future generations.
