The Chairman of South Hams District Council has planted a tree at Follaton Arboretum to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Cllr Richard Foss, chairman of South Hams District Council, planted the tree at Follaton Arboretum in Totnes. This is the final tree to be planted within a series of projects, to have taken place across the South Hams during the planting season.

The tree planted is part of The Queen’s Green Canopy initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee. The initiative has invited people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.

The Jubilee celebrations take place on the Bank Holiday weekend from Thursday 2 until Sunday 5 June.

Cllr Foss planted a wild cherry tree to commemorate The Queen’s historic 70 years on the throne. At 4m in height, it was a beautiful example of the species. Famed for its pretty, white blossom and abundance of bright red fruits, the native wild cherry, is popular with wildlife.

South Hams District Council’s chairman, Cllr Richard Foss, said: “It really is an honour to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by planting this lovely wild cherry tree. She has dedicated her life to the service of the country and the tree I’ve planted today, like the ones that have been planted across the United Kingdom, will honour her dedication.

“Of course as always, any trees we plant, even one, can only do good to combat climate change.”
