Coronation Tree Planting Ceremony

The University of Leicester Botanic Garden, Oadby, Leicester was chosen as the site to plant a sapling as a lasting legacy of King Charles III’s Coronation. I attended a dedication ceremony which was held with the Lord- Lieutenant and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Leicester.

The King granted funds to each of the United Kingdom Lord- Lieutenants to plant one tree in the area they represent to commemorate the coronation.

The Acer Campestre (or field maple) was selected as the specimen to be planted. The plant aligns with the Royal family’s commitment to environmental, conservation and sustainability.

The University of Leicester was founded by Royal charter, and it has a proud association with the Royal family.
