Queen’s Green Canopy Project
The Queen’s Green Canopy project is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, with organisations across the country invited to ‘Plant a Tree for the Jubilee’. As part of the project, the College today planted five Lime trees.
Chair of the Board of Governors, Edgar Jardine and Principal and CEO, Jonathan Heggarty marked the occasion by planting two commemorative plaques, supplied by Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI), which provides stable, permanent employment for the country’s most disadvantaged veterans and those with disabilities.
These magnificent trees will eventually reach a height of over 30m, and stand tall in the heart of the College’s stunning eco campus. Lime bark was traditionally used to make rope, and lime flowers are considered a valuable source of food for honey bees. Lime wood doesn’t warp and is still used today to make sounding boards and piano keys.
