New trees planted in ‘permanent tribute’ to Queen Elizabeth

Thousands of trees are being planted across the South Downs in memory of the late Queen.

16,000 trees will be planted in the Downs this winter, in addition to the 12,000 planted last winter.

The trees will be an “enduring tribute” to Her Majesty, expressing her devotion to the country and its environment.

Sonia Lorenzo-Martin, who oversees forests in the South Downs, said: “These life-giving trees are a fitting tribute to the memory of Her late Majesty and all her years of public service to the country.”

“Planting more trees is a key component of our effort to create more space for wildlife to thrive.

“Trees are very beautiful and, like the Queen, they bring joy to people of all ages and backgrounds.”

Vanessa Rowlands, Chair of the South Downs National Parks Authority, said: “The landscape of Britain was particularly dear to the Queen and we will be dedicated to continuing her great legacy.”
