Queen Elizabeth II Platinum JubileePrint Page Print this page

The trees were planted, and a commemorative plaque unveiled, in honour of Queen Elizabeth II to commemorate her Platinum Jubilee and acknowledge her 70 years of service as Australia`s Head of State. 42 trees were planted along the Pineapple Rail Trail and the remaining trees were offered to local schools in the area, 

Capricorn Caost Landcare received funding of $12,000 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant 70 native trees, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will provide shade, support native wildlife and raise awareness of The Queen's Jubilee.

Elizabeth II (21 April 1926 – 8 September 2022) was Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms from 6 February 1952 until her death in 2022. She was queen regnant of 32 sovereign states during her lifetime, and was head of state of 15 realms at the time of her death. Her reign of 70 years and 214 days was the longest of any British monarch and the longest verified reign of any female monarch in history.  

We took a small team to Yeppoon State School early this morning to plant a small avenue of 8 trees as part of our Queen's Jubilee Tree Planting project. We got the the trees planted and were out by 8.30am, but not before we got a soaking from a sudden downpour. The school has one of the plaques to erect, and the trees should provide a nice shady area once they grow. This project received funding from the Australian Government's Planting Trees for The Queen's Jubilee Program.
