Queen Elizabeth II Memorial TreePrint Page Print this page

The tree was planted as memorial to commemorate the passing of Queen Elizabeth II in 2022. 

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. 

Despite horrible weather we were extremely proud to have welcomed the Governor of Tasmania, Her Excellency Barbara Baker AC to Frankford on Sunday to dedicate a small ceremonial tree planting at the Hall to the memory of Queen Elizabeth II. We also had the honour of attendance by Federal, State and Local Government elected representives, along with community members to dedicate a further 7 trees to remember the 7 decades of the Queen's Reign and to acknowledge those valiant Australians who served in conflict for Crown and Country. The plantings recognised the Queen's great love of nature and trees, and her keenness to see a green canopy restored across the landscape.

Early in the new year we will begin in earnest to plant 500 native forest trees at this site to help fulfil the Queens' wish and also to build a lasting memorial to the veterans and the fallen from past conflicts. These trees planted at Frankford will be dedicated on Anzac Day 2023. We will be promoting the plantings when we have the trees ready and all welcome to help them establish!

A huge honour to work with great partners on this special Landcare project - the community of Frankford, West Tamar Council , Tamar NRM and many others!
