Planting trees for the Queen’s Jubilee

Thursday, 10 February 2022

Eligible groups and organisations in Hume are invited to submit expressions of interest for an Australian Government grant to plant trees in honour of the legacy of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and her 70 years of service to Australia and the Commonwealth. 

During this time, The Queen has visited Australia on 16 occasions. She has planted trees at community events and ceremonies on many of these visits, leaving a long-lasting reminder of the special occasion for the people in those communities. In fact, The Queen is said to have planted 1500 trees throughout Her reign.  

The Planting Trees for The Queen’s Jubilee Program is one of a range of national and community events planned by the Australian Government to celebrate The Queen’s Jubilee year. 

Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor welcomed the opportunity for local community groups to play a part in the celebrations. 

Grants from $2,500-$20,000 will be available to a broad range of organisations, with each federal electorate eligible to receive up to $100,000 for up to 10 projects. 

Suitable projects must include formal commemorative events in 2022 to mark the Jubilee, plantings of regionally‑appropriate tree species, and installation of commemorative signage or plaques. 

Expression of interest forms are available at my electorate offices in Goulburn or Camden or via email at

Expression of interest applications close Monday 28, March 2022.
