Did you know 2300 species are associated with oak trees? This consists of 38 bird species, 31 mammals, 108 fungi, and so much more.
Of these species, 320 are only found on oak. 🌲🦉
Just another reason to love our trees!💚 #NationalTreeWeek
Oak trees are one of the UK’s best known species. 🌲 Their value to our wildlife is huge. They have been found to support over 280 species of insects, which in turn provide food for many birds and other predators. 🦉💚 #NationalTreeWeek

#NationalTreeWeek has begun!
This @TheTreeCouncil event is about celebrating trees and all that they do for our planet, from storing carbon, giving life to wildlife, and stabilising our soils.
Studies show that being around trees does wonders for our #wellbeing, too.
At CPRE Hampshire we love our hedgerows. But we love our trees too! https://twitter.com/TheTreeCouncil/status/1464549795171815430
Older, larger trees can be connected to hundreds of younger trees around them. They can send nutrients, water and even any carbon they don’t use through the fungi network to smaller seedlings – which can boost seedling survival by as much as 4 times. 🌲🌍 #NationalTreeWeek
Did you know trees can talk to each other? They even share nutrients. 🌲
They manage to do this through an incredible underground system created by soil fungi. #NationalTreeWeek
🥾: Crown Meadow, Stone
To celebrate, we'll be posting daily photos of our
