March 15, 2022
GreenAcres Chiltern Park invite Countess Howe, Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire to join them to “Plant a tree for the Jubilee” at their award-winning cemetery and ceremonial park in Beaconsfield, Bucks.
GreenAcres Chiltern Park are taking part in The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC). This unique tree planting initiative marks Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 and invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.
The Park Team are proud to be part of creating a legacy in honour of Her Majesty, The Queen’s leadership of the Nation, which will benefit future generations. They provide a unique cemetery and ceremonial park serving the members of all faiths and communities creating a special place that is both tranquil and uplifting at a time of great sadness.
Senior Operations Manager Marisa Isaacs said: “I am pleased to help enhance our local environment by being part of this project. We carefully considered the surrounding native woodland and chose to plant an Oak tree.
We were delighted and honoured when Countess Howe, as Her Majesty, The Queen’s representative in Bucks, agreed to plant the tree with us. The weather was perfect, and we will all remember her visit for years to come as we watch the tree grow.”
Countess Howe shared her thoughts on the service Her Majesty, The Queen had given the UK: “She has given dedicated service to this country, the Commonwealth and the world for 70 years.
Not only is she the longest reigning monarch in our history but she leaves an extraordinary legacy. She is held in the deepest affection and utmost respect by all whose lives she has touched.”
She commented on the environmental legacy of The Queen’s Green Canopy: “It is fitting that we are able to celebrate her magnificent reign with tree planting. The trees will grow into maturity over the next century and will serve as poignant reminders of her dedication to duty and service to the nation.
The other very important reason for planting a tree is to play our part in helping to reduce the impact of climate change. Trees and vegetation absorb carbon, so by giving your support to the Queen’s Green Canopy and planting trees you are showing your commitment to working to help reduce the detrimental impact carbon has on our planet.”
The GreenAcres Group recently conducted a survey of over 2000 UK residents, asking people about environmental consciousness in relation to funerals. 53% of the responders stated that it was important to them, showing that there is shift in our awareness of the impact on the planet when planning a memorial of a loved one.
The new area celebrating the Queen’s Green Canopy is accessible for anyone to visit during the park opening hours which can be found on their website – https://www.greenacresgroup.co.uk/chiltern-park-contact/
