new trees in cemeteryaudlem cemetery

Some months ago, HM The Queen sent an appeal via Prince Charles to plant 3 Million trees as part of the celebrations for her 70 years on the throne .

Recently she made an announcement to the effect that around 1 million have now been planted .

Plus some millions of Wild Flower seeds to be sown by the Tower of London .

We here in Audlem — The Audlem Burial Board — acted on this and some 70 trees are now planted in the lower part of our so peaceful cemetery.

A small mark for Her Majesty, and also to mark the 150th Anniversary of the creation of the cemetery . All these Jubilee trees have now been adopted by those seeking a memorial to a lost one and we look forward to a splendid display in the years to come.

A note of interest for all is that the Lime Tree living next to the work shed was planted around 1810 in the reign of George III .

Topping this is the Lebanese Cedar by the front gates . Planted around 1760 at a time when Capability Brown — the famous landscape gardener , imported such for the grand estate houses .

Why it was planted here, I have no history . It is so magnificent .
