70 Trees for 70 Years: Nominate your favourite Tree or Woodlands

Trees in Buckinghamshire

Do you have a favourite tree, or woodland in Buckinghamshire? Perhaps you’ve found your very own Stick Man Tree, a den the children like to play in or just a beautiful old Oak that you pass on a regular basis.

Bucks Tree Mission are looking for the best loved trees and woodlands in Buckinghamshire, as part of Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations and are inviting you to nominate your favourites.

To mark her jubilee in 2022 Her Majesty the Queen has launched a tree planting initiative called The Queen’s Green Canopy which invites people from across the UK to ‘Plant a Tree for the Jubilee’. As well as inviting people to plant new trees, The Queen’s Green Canopy will dedicate a network of 70 Ancient Woodlands across the UK and identify 70 Ancient Trees to celebrate Her Majesty’s 70 years of service.

Alongside this, Bucks Tree Mission would like to celebrate more of Buckinghamshire’s trees and woodlands, so are inviting residents to nominate their favourites. They are aiming to compile a list of the 70 most-loved trees and woodlands here in Bucks.

To take part, take a photo of your chosen tree or woodland, let them know where it is and why it is meaningful to you, and send it in via social media to @BucksCouncil or 70trees@buckinghamshire.gov.uk

By submitting your photograph, you are consenting to its reproduction across Buckinghamshire Council social media channels and its use by the media. You can use a photograph you have taken at any time of year but the photograph must have been taken by you.

The trees or woodland must not be on private land that is not accessible to members of the public. You can nominate more than one tree or woodland. If more than 70 trees are nominated, the top 70 with the most nominations will be chosen

Nominations close at midnight on 1st May 2022

Here at hiya bucks we go on regular walks exploring the local towns, villages, public footpaths, gardens, rivers, lakes and more! We love getting out and about discovering new places to visit and we thoroughly enjoy going to local events and getting involved with the community. We hope to inspire others to step out of their daily routines and see more of our Beautiful Buckinghamshire.
