1. May 29th used to be celebrated in England as Oak Apple Day or Royal Oak Day, in celebration of Charles II hiding in an Oak Tree at Boscobel to escape the Roundheads in 1651.  It was declared a public holiday by parliament in 1660, and its official celebration continued until 1859.

 2. The date is still celebrated as Founder’s Day at the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

3. The original Royal Oak at Boscobel was destroyed in the 18th century by tourists snipping off branches as souvenirs.

4. The usual lifespan of an Oak Tree is about 200 years, but some live over 1,000 years. In 2013, a 1,200 year-old Welsh Oak Tree was blown down by high winds.

5. ‘The Royal Oak‘ is the third most common pub name in Britain.

6. Quercivorous means “feeding on Oak leaves”.7. English Oak (Quercus robur) is the most common tree species in the UK.

Woodland Trust to Help Dying Ash Trees

In recent news, the Woodland Trust is to help dying Ash Trees!

The charity has signed a £4.5 million contract to develop a more transparent supply chain for sourcing UK trees.  Woodland Trust states that the deal will ensure that the trees it plants over the next few years are from fully traceable seed stock sourced from throughout the UK and Ireland.

This will help to reduce the risk of tree diseases and premature dying of trees, as seen with the Ash Tree dieback which begun in 2012.
