About Breathe

We know about the effects of deforestation on global warming.

In this song, We are the Voice Children's Environmental Choir celebrate the trees native to Britain. Trees are the lungs of our planet. Let's go plant a tree! #queensgreencanopy #countryfile #tree #tree planting

To celebrate her Platinum Jubilee, the Queen has launched her Green Canopy project. Everyone from individuals to Scout and Girl-guiding groups, villages, cities, counties, schools and corporates will be encouraged to play their part in enhancing our environment by planting trees.

The Queen’s programme starts in October, when tree-planting season begins and will continue all the way through to the end of the Jubilee year in 2022.


Trees are the lungs of our planet, and we wanted to celebrate them. We know how deforestation is contributing to Climate Change. And we know there is a big UN conference COP26 on Climate Change being hosted in Glasgow in November. We wanted to make our contribution by singing for the climate and for the trees to encourage all of us to go out and plant them! In this song, we highlight their importance in capturing carbon and keeping us all breathing clean air.

Verse 1

Let's go plant a tree

Any sort of tree will be

A helping hand; a gift of air

A chance to breathe and take good care

Of our world and its forms

Threatened by raging storms

It needs to breathe; let's plant a tree

Saving ground for you and me


And we'll breathe, breathe, breathe x 2

Verse 2

Let's go find a place, 

Let’s go find a place

Plant a tree, make a space

For oak and ash, and cherry too

Let’s plant a tree right next to you



Middle 8

 Trees for winter, summer and fall

Don’t have to choose them

Let’s plant them all

Verse 3

 On Every path

and every verge

Let’s plant a seed

watch it emerge

when lungs are green

the air is clean

let’s plant a tree

Chorus x 2
