Hume to benefit from tree-planting grants to celebrate Queen's Jubilee

Wednesday, 13 July 2022

Nine community groups in Hume will receive Federal funding to plant native trees to mark the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor congratulated the successful local community groups for participating in the program.

“Almost $90,000 will be shared among the successful groups to undertake local tree-planting projects,” Mr Taylor said.

“Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee is an historic occasion, marking 70 years of her reign as The Queen of Australia. This occasion deserves a fitting acknowledgement encompassing our nation’s unique relationship with our Sovereign.

“The planting of trees will not only improve our local parks and amenities but will provide a lasting reminder for future generations of the Queen’s great legacy.”

The nine successful organisations in Hume include:



Hill Top Community Association


Buxton Community Association


Southern Highlands Carriage Club


Bigga Progress Association


Rotary Club of Boorowa


Gunning District Landcare


Goulburn and District Racing Club


Bundanoon Community Association


Camden RSL Sub-Branch


The program provided each federal electorate up to $100,000 in grants for up to 10 projects nominated by the local Federal Member of Parliament in consultation with their local community.

It complements other initiatives occurring across the Commonwealth to mark The Queen's Jubilee, such as the tree planting initiative in the United Kingdom which is inviting people to "Plant a Tree for the Jubilee".
