The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) has announced the UK-wide network of over 300 inspiring organisations who will receive trees from the QGC ‘Tree of Trees’

Designed by Thomas Heatherwick, the QGC ‘Tree of Trees’ sculpture stood tall outside Buckingham Palace for Her Late Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. The trees that made up the sculpture are now being gifted to amazing organisations around the UK as a thank you for the valuable and tireless work they do for the benefit of their communities.

In East Sussex, the Lord-Lieutenant is delighted that trees will go to:

Emmaus Brighton & Hove

Chailey Heritage Foundation

Education Futures Trust in Hastings

Each organisation was chosen for their unique contribution to the communities they serve and their passion for conservation and will be presented with their tree by the Lord-Lieutenant in the coming months. The trees will become part of the living legacy in honour of Her Majesty, joining over a million trees already planted across the UK as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy.

For more information on the QGC in East Sussex and how you can take part as we enter the new tree planting season please see Queen’s Green Canopy | Action in rural Sussex
