Queen Elizabeth IIPrint Page Print this page

The cape chestnut tree was planted in honour of Queen Elizabeth II who died 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.  

Taree Rotary Club has planted a tree in Her Majesty’s honour. A small crowd braved the rain to gather for a ceremony in Rotary Park – with many writing their condolences in a book to be sent to the Governor-General.

“I can remember sitting in a car with some friends listening to her coronation,” Rotarian Max Carey said.

“We honour her majesty we believe in her cause. A history maker, a gutsy leader so this is the least we can do for the Queen,” club president Dr Grace Maano said.

The club chose a cape chestnut tree.
