Re-planting of The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy tree

Uckfield Town Council have announced that the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy tree is to be re-planted in May.

On 12 November 2018, Nus Ghani MP joined other members of Uckfield Town Council to plant one of the trees provided as part of The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy project.

The project is designed to create a network of forest conservation initiatives across all 53 Commonwealth countries to mark Her Majesty’s lifetime’s service to the Commonwealth.

Although originally planted in November 2018, it was felt the tree would need some nurturing to provide it with the best chance.

The young sapling was removed and Uckfield’s Town Mayor, Councillor Spike Mayhew, took on the responsibility to look after it until it was bigger and stronger. The Mayor’s green fingers have worked their magic and it is now time for it to be safely re-planted in its original position.

The Tree will be re-planted on May 12th at 2.30pm.
