Diamond Jubilee Celebrations Take Root at Chiswick House Gardens
Chiswick House Gardens presented with a black poplar tree by Sir David Attenborough to commemorate Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee in 2012
Chiswick House Gardens were presented with a black poplar tree by Sir David Attenborough to commemorate Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012 at a ceremony held in Holland Park during National Tree Week in December.
All the boroughs of Greater London received a black poplar tree and Chiswick House Gardens are honoured to be the chosen site for the London Borough of Hounslow. Collectively the trees will provide a link throughout the 620 square miles of the Capital.
Cllr Amrit Mann, Mayor of the London Borough of Hounslow and Fiona Crumley, Head Gardener at Chiswick House were presented with the tree; a large native species which used to flourish across the whole of England but is now rare. The Queen has recognised the importance of this now endangered species by planting saplings on many of her estates and in the Royal Parks.
Chiswick’s historic black poplar will be unveiled in a ceremony next summer.
