Projects

Britain has more ancient oak trees than the rest of Europe combined, making the oak a quintessential part of our national identity.

Action Oak works with owners and managers of oak trees and woodlands to help protect oak trees from a range of threats. We also fund research to improve understanding of the threats to our oak trees and identify priority areas for action. Discover more about Action Oak’s partnership projects.
