Tree of Trees from The Queen’s Green Canopy planted at Chailey Heritage

The Lord-Lieutenant of East Sussex plants the tree at Chailey Heritage Foundation's site in North Chailey

The living memorial to Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth was planted in the grounds of Chailey Heritage Foundation by the Lord-Lieutenant of East Sussex.

The tree which is an Alder was part of The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) “Tree of Trees” which stood tall as a message of hope, regeneration and optimism to the nation and the world as part of the Platinum Jubilee weekend celebrations.

Chailey Heritage Foundation is one of more than 300 organisations from across the UK who received a tree in recognition of contribution to the community. Two other charities in East Sussex were chosen – Emmaus Brighton & Hove and Educations Futures Trust in Hastings.

Gareth Germer, Chief Executive of the charity, said, “We were delighted to welcome both the Lord-Lieutenant and the Vice Lord-Lieutenant to meet some of the young people and help us plant this special tree.”
