Tree Council Jubilee Tree:
This is one of The Tree Council’s 60 educational tree planting schemes with children that were inspired by the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Each tree, provided by The Tree Council, was chosen and planted by volunteers in the community.
Type of tree:
Aspen
Location:
Hulland Primary School
Ashbourne
DE6 3FS

On Friday 29th November 2013 a commemorative aspen (Populus tremula) tree was planted in the middle of Hulland Primary School’s new woodland walk to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.

This also coincided with the celebration of 150 years of the school, near Ashbourne in Derbyshire. We were honoured that the Vice Lord Lieutenant of Derbyshire, Colonel John Wilson, attended to plant the tree, alongside our Headteacher Mrs Wendy Underwood. The aspen was the last of almost 100 trees the school has planted for the woodland walk.
