Watford Borough Council and their environmental partner Veolia UK, are hosting another opportunity for you to collect your free trees!
Residents are encouraged to bring your own bag to help protect the tree and proof of address in Watford.
The trees are small and easy to carry, so they encourage grab a few, and to walk to the event if you can.
Come along to outside Daisy’s in the Park Cafe on Friday 11 February between 9am to 12pm (while stocks last) to collect your native species.

The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022. Everyone across the UK is being invited to plant trees from October 2021, when the tree planting season begins, through to the end of the Jubilee year in 2022.
Everyone from individuals to Scout and Girlguiding groups, villages, cities, counties, schools and corporates will be encouraged to play their part to enhance our environment by planting trees from October, when the tree planting season begins, through to the end of the Jubilee year in 2022.
Any trees planted from October 2021 to the end of the jubilee year in 2022 can be part of the QGC. Tree planting season is October to March – this is when roots are dormant and new trees will have the best chance of flourishing. Why not use the summer months to plan your planting and arrange a day of celebration?
Before you apply you’ll need to:
- Know the six digit grid reference for the land you wish to plant using the grid reference finder
- Have permission from the legal landowner
