Men in Sheds Poynton are proud to lead Poynton’s first project to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by planting seven Birch trees at the top of Brecon Field. The trees, Betula utilis var.Jacquemontii ‘Snow Queen’ have distinctive white bark and have been carefully arranged in a circle to commemorate the Queen’s Crown, with each tree representing a decade of the Queen’s reign.

Geoff and Martin from Men in Sheds were assisted by Chris Oakes and Sharon Duke from Poynton Town Council to plant the specimen trees on Friday 10th April. Geoff said, “Men in Sheds Poynton wanted to commemorate such an impressive milestone in a special way. We hope the trees will provide a lasting legacy for Poynton residents to enjoy by providing an interesting focal point, as well as a useful habitat for local wildlife. Special thanks to Poynton Town Council for helping to organise this”.
