Over 50 schools and community groups in Merseyside are set to plant commemorative "Jubilee Trees" this winter as part of a project coordinated by The Mersey Forest and Sefton CVS.


The project was officially launched by Dame Lorna Muirhead, the Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside with a ceremony in Liverpool Anglican Cathedral on 24 November, which included stories from schools across Merseyside about the project, and a choral evensong marking the end of the Cathedral's celebrations of the Queen's Jubilee year.


Dame Lorna Muirhead said: "I am delighted that so many schools and community groups across Merseyside have chosen to honour the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in this way. In 60 years these trees will be a landmark to commemorate this special year."


"The trees planted as part of this project will serve as a continuing reminder of Her Majesty's lifelong service to this country."


The trees are funded by the national Big Tree Plant campaign and The Woodland Trust, as part of The Mersey Forest.


Helen Carty, High Sheriff of Liverpool, who came up with the Jubilee Trees concept, said: "This is a great way to round off a memorable year for the country, and the trees will also help create The Mersey Forest – providing habitat for wildlife, helping to improve air quality, and creating greener, even more attractive school grounds for children to enjoy."
