Ancient Oaks

Julian Hight has travelled extensively in his quest to discover more about some of the world`s ancient trees – researching their history and the legends behind them, sourcing engravings and old photographs, as well as producing new documentation to tell the stories of these important trees . Here he celebrates a few specific ancient oak trees in the UK – calling for their preservation and also for the planting of new oaks.

Julian will be speaking at Chalke Valley History Festival 2018 about the ‘History and Legends of the World’s Ancient Trees’ on Saturday 30th June – tickets are available here.
