Save the Oaks - A radical act of love
More than 750,000 oak tree saplings that were due to be planted in the UK, suddenly faced a fate of imminent death by burning. Growers and nursery owners stated that they were forced to burn all the saplings because of delayed government tree planting schemes. However, there are positive actions still taking place, amidst global crisis.
Save The Oaks Campaign was created following unprecedented response from groups and individuals who have pledged to buy and plant these oaks throughout the UK.
This project honours those who have lost their lives to Covid 19, to the 95% of all native ash trees dying or killed by dieback, and the trees destroyed for HS2.
We plant as an act of love, we rewild.

Support by raising awareness on the campaign via the Save the Oaks website. Help connect landowners to the cause. We are searching for potential land in the UK where the trees can be planted, so they may live healthy, long prosperous lives.
Are you a landowner?
Save the Oaks campaign is looking to connect with landowners within the UK who are willing to take tree saplings to be planted on their lands.
There are many different varieties of broadleaf (disease free) species to choose from and we can help to raise the funds to get the trees to you. We may also support in available volunteers in your area to help plant them. Get in touch if you are a landowner and wish to help saves trees by being a part this campaign.
However many trees you can help us to save, the better.
