By creating a pan-Commonwealth network of forest conservation projects, the QCC will mark Her Majesty The Queen’s service to the Commonwealth while conserving indigenous forests for future generations.
James had planted the tree’s including a Rowan (Sorbus aucuparia) in Elton and a Silver Birch (Betula pendula) in Moorside, James had the assistance from different community leaders and groups, to plant these tree’s that will live on for many years to come, such as Brandlesholme Residents Association, People’s Voice – Brandlesholme Community Centre and Ambition for Moorside.
