we love planting trees

Prince Charles urged the people across the UK to plant trees in an initiative to celebrate the Queen’s 70th anniversary in 2022. This call must have resonated with Hope Spring eCard, a UK ecard site and a water charity initiative whose head office is in Hereford, as it plans to plant trees dedicated to the  celebration of the Queen’s 70th anniversary. The charity plants  trees monthly as part of its adherence to carbon footprint reduction strategy and it must have planted over a hundred and fifty trees to date. 

According to the Hope Spring ecard platform manager,  Evgeniy Garkaviy, their organization is very pleased and are very willing to join other organizations in the planting of  trees to commemorate the Queen’s Seventieth anniversary. He added that, as part of their commitment to this “royal” project which will involve planting of 70 trees by them, they will be creating and adding to their catalogue of charity anniversary ecards, a Queen’s platinum anniversary.

The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC)  is a scheme launched  to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 which invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee.” QGC will bring about new trees being planted, as well as ancient woodlands and forests protected.

Commenting on the scheme which he described as “the statement of hope and faith in the future”, Prince Charles said: “Whether you are an individual hoping to plant a single sapling in your garden, a school or community group planting a tree, a council, charity or business intending to plant a whole avenue of trees or a farmer looking to create new hedgerows, everyone across the country can get involved.

QGC is expected to see thousands of new trees planted across the country, it is a faith we all share and an outcome that would, among many other benefits, pay huge dividends in the form of a good regional and global climate in the long run.

The Hope Spring Water trustee, Temi Odurinde, while commenting on their tree planting project, said they are particularly pleased to play their part, as an eco-minded charity organization, in this historic project, which marks the very first time a British monarch will have been on the throne for seventy years. He encouraged other people to support the project to celebrate Her Majesty and, most importantly, to ensure a greener environment for generations to come.
