Ascot Racecourse and the Crown Estate welcomed a total of 70 schools at a ceremony to celebrate 70 new oak trees planted as part of The Queen's Green Canopy 'Plant a tree for the jubilee' project at Windsor Great Park. The trees have been planted next to the Royal Procession route from Windsor Castle to Ascot Racecourse, along Duke's Lane.

Nick Smith, Director of Racing and Public Affairs at Ascot Racecourse, said, “We were thrilled to welcome all 70 schools to the ceremony in celebration of this project which will have a positive long-lasting impact on the Great Park and also act as a lasting reminder for generations to come of The Queen's Platinum Jubilee.”
