2022 marks The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and the start of a year-long project focusing on planting trees and hedgerows for The Queen’s Green Canopy. As part of this historic and significant year, Ridge Clean Energy is donating a native tree to all new citizens welcomed to Oxfordshire. They will be given the choice to either take the tree home and plant it in their own gardens, or to donate the tree to a woodland in Oxfordshire. The county is proud to have a diverse population, and it is wonderful for the estimated 1500 new citizens to be able to mark this milestone in their lives by planting a tree for The Queen’s Green Canopy.
