MCC announces its support for the Queen’s Green Canopy

Following the recent official launch of the Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) project, to help celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, and further to discussion at last week’s meeting, MCC is pleased to announce its full support for this initiative to help ensure that this project fulfils its potential across the Muckhart area and beyond.

According to the Chief Executive of the project, “the aim of The Queen’s Green Canopy is to thank Her Majesty The Queen for her exceptional service, celebrate her Platinum Jubilee and promote the importance of trees to the environment, through the encouragement of tree planting and tree preservation across the nation.”

In support of this project, MCC has already established a Working Group, consisting of members who volunteered during our meeting at the end of March, which will be supporting Tim Allan, in his position as Deputy Lieutenant for Clackmannanshire, with this initiative in the coming weeks.

This project will see communities, charities, schools, youth groups, councils and landowners planting trees across the four nations to create a lasting legacy in honour of The Queen’s leadership of the Nation that will enhance our environment and the landscape for generations to come. The campaign will encourage the planting of healthy, native trees that will thrive in their environments.
