"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," the website states. "With a focus on planting sustainably, the QGC will encourage planting of trees to create a legacy in honour of The Queen’s leadership of the Nation, which will benefit future generations. As well as inviting the planting of new trees, The Queen’s Green Canopy will dedicate a network of 70 Ancient Woodlands across the United Kingdom and identify 70 Ancient Trees to celebrate Her Majesty’s 70 years of service."

Earlier this year, the two kicked off the campaign.

"Today marks the launch of The Queen’s Green Canopy, a tree planting initiative to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 and to enhance our environment now, and for generations to come. The initiative invites people to 'Plant a Tree for the Jubilee'! @qgcanopy," Charles and Camilla's official Instagram account captioned a photo of the 72-year-old with his mom.

The message continued, "The Queen joined The Prince of Wales, Patron of @qgcanopy, for the first Jubilee tree planting at Windsor Castle earlier this year. With a focus on planting sustainably, the initiative invites individuals, community groups, businesses and others across the UK to plant trees. The @qgcanopy will also see a network of ancient trees and woodland across the UK dedicated to The Queen to mark the occasion, highlighting the importance of protecting our existing natural resources for future generations."
