Now tree-planting season is mainly over here in the UK, and we’re finally getting some bursts of rain to ensure our lovingly planted oaks and others are getting some water, I’ve been researching and reading again, around plant connections and the underworld/overworld life of trees and the living vegetal world. Have just discovered the workContinue reading “Oaks – the most powerful plant of all”
Save The Oaks hosted author Roselle Angwin to launch her wondrous new book ‘A Spell in The Forest’ (pub. Moon Books) on the eve of Thursday 1st July, and the link to the recording is below. My word from the book is ‘intertwinement’ – she weaves together deep mythology of humans living with trees, andContinue reading “‘A Spell in The Forest’”

Following news reports earlier this year that 750K oak saplings were facing destruction as the UK Government had reneged on promises of a huge national tree planting scheme, Extinction Rebellion Rewilding’s Save the Oaks campaign today announced that it has put in an initial order for 30,000 oak saplings having crowdfunded more than £10K so far.
