A new Tree has been planted in The Village!

Davidia Tree for the Platinum Jubilee.


As part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations to mark 70 years of service of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II a new tree – a Davidia – has been planted by The Village Pond. This is our contribution to “The Queen’s Green Canopy” effort to plant thousands of new trees throughout the land.

A major part of that initiative is also to dedicate a network of 70 Ancient Woodlands across the United Kingdom and identify 70 Ancient Trees to celebrate Her Majesty’s 70 years of service. For more information on that initiative see the link below – this will open in a new Tab.

Plaque to Commemorate the 2022 Jubilee

The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 which invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.

The tree is a Davidia Involucrata otherwise known as The Dove Tree, The Handkerchief Tree or The Ghost Tree – an unusual tree with large white bracts enclosing flowers hanging from the branches. Heart shaped leaves with good autumn colours.
