Two special trees have been planted on Llwyn Isaf Green marking the late Queen and upcoming coronation.

A Sequoiadendron giganteum ‘Glauca’ (Blue Giant Redwood) has been planted in memory of the country’s longest reigning monarch her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and a Quercus robur ‘Fastigiata Koster’ (Fastigiate Oak) to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III.

The planting ceremony was attended by the Mayor of Wrexham Councillor Brian Cameron and senior representatives of Wrexham Council.


As part of the Local Places for Nature Grant Scheme that aims to bring a green infrastructure to places where people live and work. The trees planted will provide a valuable habitat for wildlife and they will enhance the city centre.

Wrexham Council says it is committed to planting trees and that everyone knows how important trees are, improving biodiversity, creating shade, and capturing and storing carbon dioxide with the climate emergency we are in.

Darren Williams, Chief Officer, Environment and Technical said: “When we had the opportunity to plant more trees it seemed a fitting and appropriate tribute to undertake this commemorative  planting.”
