Diversity: There are over 600 species of oak trees found throughout the world. They are native to the Northern Hemisphere but can be found in diverse environments, from tropical rainforests to arid deserts.

Longevity: Oak trees are known for their longevity. Some species can live for several centuries. The English Oak and the White Oak are examples of long-lived oak species.

Mature Size: Oak trees vary in size, but many species can grow to be quite large. Some can reach heights of 70 feet or more, with a broad canopy that provides ample shade.


Why is planting trees so important for the environment?

Carbon Sequestration: Trees play a vital role in mitigating climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide (CO2) during photosynthesis. They act as carbon sinks, helping to reduce the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Biodiversity Support: Trees provide habitats for a diverse range of plants, animals, fungi, and microorganisms. Forest ecosystems, in particular, are hubs of biodiversity. Planting trees helps to preserve and restore these ecosystems, contributing to the overall health of the planet’s biodiversity.
