To celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, the Woodland Trust has announced the creation of 60 Diamond Woods in the UK.
From Stornoway to Truro, the UK’s landscape and local environments are about to be transformed. Each of the Diamond Woods will be more than 60 acres in size and will symbolise 60 years of The Queen’s reign.
Woodland Trust Jubilee Woods director Georgina McLeod said: “We’re absolutely delighted that so many different organisations and landowners have joined with the Trust to create these 60 very special Diamond Woods.
“They will help make a massive difference to the environment and pay a special tribute to Her Majesty The Queen. By the end of the project millions of people will have planted trees, a testament to the nation’s love for trees and our second longest reigning monarch.”
The Trust has also announced the creation of 250 smaller Jubilee Woods and 25 Princess Woods, to recognise the years before Her Majesty became The Queen.
