The Queen’s Green Canopy 

Not published until 1st June, the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh has exclusive access to this stunning publication, available now!

The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh has collaborated as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy - a unique UK-wide tree planting initiative created to honour and celebrate the late Queen Elizabeth. The initiative has brought communities and conservation charities together across the nation to plant trees to benefit future generations.

The Queen's Green Canopy is a stunning photography book showcasing 70 ancient trees and 70 ancient woodlands dedicated by the QGC initiative in honour of the Platinum Jubilee. These photographs were taken over the course of a year by Adrian Houston (author of A Portrait of the Tree) and Charles Sainsbury-Plaice to celebrate the work of the initiative.

Alongside these photographs are short written pieces, contributers range from presenters such as Alan Titchmarsh, Adam Henson and Danny Clarke to conservation experts from the Woodland Trust and the Duchy of Cornwall. As well as Dame Judi Dench, Dame Joanna Lumley and Archbishop Justin Welby. In these pieces they reflect on the trees that have made a mark on their lives and the importance of protecting Britain's woodlands for future generations.
