Woodland Trust marks Jubilee Woods project across UK

Northern Ireland First Minister Peter Robinson MLA has put trees and woodland in the spotlight by planting the first of 60 new oaks at Stormont Estate.

The new oak grove is part of the Woodland Trust’s Jubilee Woods project, a tree-planting campaign to mark the Queen’s  2012 Diamond Jubilee.

The aim is to plant six million trees across the UK and involve millions of people in the planting.

Meanwhile, local communities and schools around Wales will get digging this February.

Everyone in Wales is to get the chance to be part of the campaign to help transform communities for future generations by planting a million trees in February 2012.

On 3 February, the Queen and HRH The Princess Royal together planted symbolic trees at Sandringham to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee and the Woodland Trust’s project.

Her Majesty is creating a new 20 acre woodland on the Sandringham Estate as part of the scheme.
