‘Celebrating Our Oaks’ Outdoor Exhibition

‘Celebrating Our Oaks’ Outdoor Exhibition

Details

Celebrating Our Oaks is an outdoor exhibition of award-winning photographs of some of the UK’s favourite trees.

The exhibition has been brought here both to raise awareness of the wonderful oak trees here and to inspire visitors to help to protect oak trees across Wales and beyond. You can discover the 5 elements of the exhibition next to 5 of our favourite oak tree areas in the Botanic Garden – see the attached map for details.

The oak tree is a vital part of the UK’s cultural and national landscape and is one of the most common and loved broadleaf trees. Our oak trees are a foundation species that define much of the structure of our native ecosystems, enrich our lives and support thousands of other native species, yet they are now facing a fight for survival. Environmental pressures such as climate change, pollution and drought, coupled with pests and diseases, mean our oak trees need our collective intervention to prevent their future loss.

What is Action Oak?
Action Oak is a unique collaboration of partners including charities, governments, landowners and research institutions, dedicated to protecting oak trees for future generations. Over the last five years Action Oak partners have invested over £10m in research on pests and diseases, such as Acute Oak Decline, and managing the oak processionary moth outbreak in the London area. The partnership is committed to raising further funds for vital research and monitoring to protect our oak trees.

The founding partners of Action Oak include the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, Woodland Heritage, the Woodland Trust, the Forestry Commission, the National Trust, Forest Research, the Duchy of Cornwall, the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs and the governments of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
