Tree of Trees – Final three Surrey Trees planted

The Lord-Lieutenant has finished planting the last three ‘Tree of Trees’ from The Queen’s Green Canopy.

On Friday 18th November, The Lord-Lieutenant’s first visit was to Surrey Outdoor learning in High Ashurst to plant their tree.  

It was then on to Frimley Park Hospital where The Lord-Lieutenant met with Neil Dardis, Chief Executive, Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, who said  “We are delighted to be chosen as one of the 350 organisations across the UK to receive a lasting legacy honouring Her Majesty The Queen’s extraordinary service to both her country and her people.”

“The gift of the tree also recognises the valuable and tireless efforts of our staff which is a fantastic tribute to their hard work and dedication during the challenges of the last few years.”

On Monday 21st November The Lord-Lieutenant visited The Patchworking Garden Project in Dorking.  Carmel O’Shea, Founder of The Patchworking Garden Project, said:

We are honoured to have been chosen to receive a tree from the Queen’s special selection of ‘Tree of Trees’.”

“Planting it in the field adjacent to our academy, will mean it will be seen and shared by the whole community, spreading the message that the preservation of nature, which we already hold as a central tenet of our organisation needs to be valued and upheld.”
