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:
Tasburgh Village
Norfolk
NR15 1LR

The green is a lovely natural gateway to Tasburgh in Norfolk. It is in the historic part of the village which grew up along the old Roman Road and one of the features on the Boudica Way.

This, together with the village sign which stands on the green, made it a natural place to plant a special tree in celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee.

Although there were Diamond Jubilee celebrations in Tasburgh earlier in 2012, we wanted to do something that could be enjoyed by future generations. Planting a tree would allow present residents to pass down the memories to their children and grandchildren. An oak was chosen as it will last for many years and it will stand out on the green and in the village.

The tree was planted on 27th November 2012 by eight children from Preston Primary School, with the Headteacher, Mrs Lesley Payne, teacher Mrs Debra Newson and District Councillor Mrs Florence Ellis.

The schoolchildren have been encouraged to keep a watchful eye on the tree to help it settle and grow and be enjoyed by everyone who comes to Tasburgh.

The children composed this poem to mark the occasion.
