Planting the Silver Birch, part of the QCC

Planting the donated Silver Birch sapling, one of the 50,000 trees, which forms part of the QCC.

Warwick School proudly planted one of 50,000 trees that forms part of the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy (QCC), a global forest conservation initiative to mark Her Majesty’s lifetime of service to the Commonwealth. 
The free tree giveaway was snapped up in a matter of minutes, by 10,000 members of the public. 
Lucky recipients of a pack of five saplings were Claire and Andy Hixon whose son Toby attends Warwick School. The Hixons donated the Silver Birch to Warwick School and planted it in memory of the Old Warwickians who lost their lives in WW1.
