Plant a Tree for the Jubilee

Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council is inviting residents across the Borough to join them and ‘Plant a Tree for the Jubilee’ to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 2022.  This UK wide programme will see millions of trees planted across the region from October 2021, when the tree planting season begins, through to the end of the Jubilee year in 2022 and is designed to highlight the importance of trees to the environment.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Billy Webb said;

“We are looking forward to working with our local community groups, schools, businesses and keen gardeners on planting projects to mark her majesty’s 70 years of service to this country. So whether you’re an individual looking to plant a single sapling in your garden, a group or business planting a celebration tree or a farmer looking to create new hedgerows, we are inviting everyone to get involved.”

The Mayor continues;

“Trees are essential to our fight against climate change and every tree planted will bring benefits to people, wildlife and the environment, now and for the future.”
