In honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee we want to celebrate those who have made a difference to our communities.
To commemorate the occasion, we will be planting a new public avenue of trees within our 2000 acre of UNESCO World Heritage site. The trees, which have been grown from acorns or seeds on the Estate will be flanked by native wildflowers to encourage pollinators.
Once the Jubilee Avenue is planted, you will be able to visit and watch the trees grow year on year and the wildflowers bloom each summer. Nominees will also be able to see their name on a board near the avenue.
There will be 70 trees available for local heroes to be nominated and once nominations are in they will be selected by our senior leadership team.
Once nominees have been selected, they will be emailed with further information.
The avenue will be a mixture of Sweet Chestnut and Rowan which have been grown from our older trees on our estate.
Trees will be planted in winter later this year by our Rural team.
The wildflower mix has been carefully crafted from a variety of species that are native to the UK. The variety of seeds have been shown to have been Britain for over 400 years, making them the perfect forage for native pollinators.
