Community-based tree planting events will be held across Australia to mark the Jubilee (70 years of service) of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, in 2022.
Planting Trees for The Queen’s Jubilee (the program) will run over 3 years across 2021–22 to 2023–24. The program will provide up to $15.1 million of grant funding to eligible groups and organisations for community-based tree planting events.
The objective of the program is to mark the significant occasion of Her Majesty’s Jubilee through community tree planting events across Australia.
The intended outcomes of the program are to:
* increase community awareness and celebration of Her Majesty’s Jubilee
* create a legacy of tree plantings across the nation for Australians to enjoy that also serve to honour the memory of The Queen and her 70 years of service to Australia and the Commonwealth.
* increase and/or enhance the area of tree canopy.
The program complements other initiatives occurring across the Commonwealth to mark The Queen’s Jubilee, such as tree planting initiative in the United Kingdom which is inviting people to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.
The available program funding is allocated equally across each of the 151 Federal electorates in Australia.
