Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II launched a campaign to plant trees on Monday to mark the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne.
The “Queens Green Canopy” scheme, run by the “Cool Earth” climate charity and the British government, was launched on Monday.
The campaign aims to encourage people to plant trees from October until the end of 2022, the year that marks the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Buckingham Palace released a photo of the Queen, Prince Charles, and her son, next to the throne to launch the campaign.
Prince Charles said in a video released on the occasion, “Whether you are an individual hoping to plant one seedling in your garden, a school, a community group planting a tree, a council, a charity, or a business intending to plant a pathway full of trees or a farmer looking to construct a new fence, Every person across the country can participate in the project.
The queen planted around 1,500 trees all over the world during her reign.
British schools and community groups can apply for 3 million free seedlings from the Woodland Conservation Trust as part of the project.
