Celebrating 20 Years In Business

At Robin Jessop Ltd we are celebrating 20 years in business. In order to mark the occasion, we felt it was appropriate to support a scheme that would help provide more trees for future generations to enjoy as well as help combat climate change. So, we decided that for every property we sell in 2022 and beyond we will gift the purchaser of each property a sapling tree. The scheme we have chosen to support is The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC). 


The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 which invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.


With a focus on planting sustainably, the QGC will encourage planting of trees to create a legacy in honour of The Queen’s leadership of the Nation, which will benefit future generations. 


To begin our tree planting initiative for the QGC we invited MP for Richmond (Yorks) and Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak to plant a tree at Little Danby Hall, Northallerton. 


He said: “The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is a very special moment in time to recognise the amazing contribution of Her Majesty and I applaud Robin Jessop Ltd for making its contribution to the celebration and helping to create the green legacy of the anniversary. 

“It is also a special year for Robin Jessop Ltd which is a leading rural property business, family-based and committed to delivering a quality service to its clients in North Yorkshire. 

“I congratulate Robin and his team for what they have created in just 20 years.”


Robin sold Little Danby Hall to Michael and Jane Furze who have chosen to plant a Walnut Tree (Juglans Regia) in the grounds of the Hall. Business founder Robin Jessop said: “Planting the right trees in the right places will not only benefit our children and grandchildren and future generations but will also combat climate change. 

“The Greek proverb is so appropriate: ‘A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they will never sit in’.”
