The Queen’s Green Canopy project began in March 2021 with Elizabeth II planting a tree with her son. Two years on, it has ended with Charles III planting one with his.

The scheme, in which thousands of volunteers planted more than three million saplings, was designed to mark the 2022 Platinum Jubilee

Following the Queen’s death, however, it was extended so more trees could be planted in Her late Majesty’s memory.

Last night, the King – who often referred to his mother as ‘darling mama’ – released a message of thanks, along with a picture of him and William planting a maple at Sandringham. 

He said: ‘As the second planting season draws to a close, I wanted to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has helped to create an enduring legacy in Queen Elizabeth’s name.’

He added: ‘This project has shown how simple, practical and positive gestures can make a big difference, and I can think of no more fitting tribute to her late Majesty’s seventy-year reign.’

Footage of the late Queen planting trees is shown in a short film narrated by Dame Judi Dench.

During her seven decades-long reign, the Queen planted more than 1,500 trees around the world.

The Queen’s Green Canopy project saw thousands of volunteers – including scores of celebrities – planting trees across Britain.

A dedicated network of 70 ancient woodlands and 70 ancient trees have been named to celebrate the late Queen’s 70 years on the Throne.
