Oak Day 2023

Oak Day is an Action Oak initiated, targeted day of awareness raising for Oak Trees native to the UK, which falls within National Tree Week 2023 on Thursday the 30th of November 2023

A prominent tree across history for the UK’s flora, fauna & human population, the benefits of our native Oak trees have been felt far and wide, from the biodiversity they support to the livelihoods of the people who rely on them. 

What would the loss of such a prominent tree mean for the species and people who rely on them? This question isn’t just hypothetical, the threat to Oak trees has grown considerably. With existing and emerging pests & diseases, and the growing climate emergency, the time for Action is now.

Join us for a day of Oak-themed posts and stories on Thursday the 30th of November 2023. #OakDay2023

We have created some resources to help you with your Oak-themed content. Please find our 'Oak Prompt Sheet' below.
