SIXTY trees are being planted along the Marlow Road into Henley to celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee.
Aida Hersham, who owns Fawley Court, is creating a “jubilee avenue” in conjunction with the Woodland Trust.
The first tree, a 4.5m high English oak, was planted by Henry Aubrey-Fletcher, the Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, in a ceremony yesterday (Thursday).
Mrs Hersham said she felt it was important that the first tree was planted during the Queen’s diamond jubilee year although the project will take about two years to complete.
She said: “It’s a great thing to host and it’s an honour for us to be able to do so.
“It will be a long-lasting way to celebrate Her Majesty’s diamond jubilee and will be enjoyed by all the future generations.”
Children from Badgemore Primary School and Nettlebed Community School were among pupils who helped to plant 300 trees on the estate to create a jubilee copse.
