Giant Redwood planted in West Ham Park in memory of Her Late Majesty The Queen

A Giant Redwood tree has been planted in West Ham Park as a living memorial to Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Pupils from Park Primary School in Newham helped plant lavender around the tree, which was planted in the park’s Ornamental Gardens, as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy campaign.

The initiative was created to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June last year.

Following her passing in September, His Majesty The King agreed to extend the scheme to allow people to plant trees in her memory.
