Council plants 250 trees in honour of The Queen
We've planted 250 new trees at Ashenground Woods Nature Reserve in Haywards Heath as part of The Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
The new trees will form part of The Queen’s Green Canopy, a network of individual trees, avenues, copses and whole woodlands that have been planted by people across the UK in honour of the Queen’s 70 years of service.
Mid Sussex District Council Vice-Chairman, Cllr Phillip Coote was joined by councillors, MSDC contractors Id Verde, County Tree Surgeons and local volunteers in March to plant the trees, which were generously donated by Government software provider Arcus Global.
The saplings, which are a mixture of British native species comprising English Oak, Hawthorn, Field Maple and Rowan, will enhance and extend the woodland, regenerating the area and enabling new habitats to flourish.
Residents can use a dedicated map to view the locations of all the trees planted across the UK in honour of Her Majesty at www.queensgreencanopy.org
