Queen's Green canopy 2023
The Friends were delighted to be joined by the Deputy Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, Richard H Beazley MBE on Saturday 14 January for our official planting of The Queen's Green Canopy trees.
Four trees have been planted as a living legacy to honour Her Majesty. Two hornbeams, an elm and silver birch were planted to mark the occasion.
The Queen's Green Canopy is a living legacy with over a million trees planted in Her Majesty's name across the nation. It also serves as a lasting tribute to Her Majesty's extraordinary service.
The friends are delighted to have been able to contribute to this initiative. We were joined on the day by representatives from the Conservators, Therfield Heath Ranger and the team from Shire Trees Limited who generously planted the trees for free.
