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. 

The project received funding of $9,850 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. BIEPA has been awarded a grant to plant 50 shade trees, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will enhance community well-being and provide habitat for native fauna.

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. 

What a tremendous tree planting triumph!
On Saturday morning, a small army of volunteers planted dozens of new trees in Ernest Sendall Park to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee, and to commemorate her life. These baby native trees will become future homes for insects, birds, and other Bribie wildlife.

BIEPA is grateful to Glenda and Mark who put so much effort into sourcing trees and equipment, and digging holes assisted by other BEIPA members. Thanks also to Terry Young MP and Brooke Savige for their enthusiasm and ongoing support.
This event was funded by the Planting Trees for The Queen’s Jubilee program, part of the Queen's Green Canopy initiative. Watch out for more tree planting events on our website.
