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:
English Oak
Location:
Ringland Primary School
Newport
NP19 9LU

An English oak tree was planted in our local primary school on 7th December 2012. Ringland Primary School was chosen as the most appropriate home for the community’s Jubilee Diamond Tree as it has an excellent eco-project.

It also works closely with the Ringland Wood and Wildlife Conservation Group to educate children from this Gwent community about the importance of conservation and taking a more active role in caring for their local environment.

Those taking part in the planting ceremony included the Mayor of Newport, Councillor John Guy, aided by our junior group (The Ringland Rangers) and the Green Team from Newport City Council. Also in attendance were Jessica Morden MP, Councillor Emma Corten and police officers from Always Police Station.

Teachers and pupils from the school donned their wellingtons to watch the tree being planted.
