The Queen's Green Canopy Tree Planting Day

Saturday, 4 December, 2021 - 10:00

In partnership with The Queen's Green Canopy Committee, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council and Greater Manchester Combined Authority, join City of Trees for a day of tree planting at Gatley Hill, Stockport. The Queen's Green Canopy is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.

Book on for one of multiple planting sessions across the day and come and help to create a legacy in honour of The Queen’s leadership of the nation, which will benefit future generations. Greater Manchester is a Queen's Green Canopy 'Champion City' and so we will be planting hundreds of trees in Stockport at Gatley Hill to mark the occasion on 4th December.

Register for the event here.

Bring your spade and get tree planting! We will supply all other planting equipment to help you plant the trees. We will have a limited supply of spades available on the day for those who don’t own spades - however to guarantee you have one, bring your own along. Please do wear warm, waterproof clothing and sturdy, closed-toe footwear.

Every participant will receive one free hot drink voucher to be redeemed during the day.

Please note, this is an open space site, uneven at times (and potentially muddy) and so access may not be suitable for wheelchair users.


There is a very limited number of car parking spaces available at the main entrance (off Church Road) , though where possible, please do arrive on public transport or on foot to minimise the event's carbon footprint and to avoid disappointment. The site is a 12 minute walk away from Gatley train station and the 11/11A bus passes close to the site with stops on Church Road.
