Whatever you think of the jubilee celebrations and monarchy, joy or hostility or indifference, one excellence has come from it. The Woodland Trust has masterminded the creation of new woods throughout Britain. Yes, there are sixty of them; yes, they are called jubilee woods; but my attitude in these circumstances is Lydgate’s towards incantations. The sixty are the noted ones and all over the country trees are planting, many by schools.  We are scattering woods across the country.

Look at this page for what is happening in Cornwall.  Put in your postcode or location and celebrate the wooding of Cornwall and Britain. Perhaps add a tree of your own. Just don’t tell the sell-off-the-forest government.
