Activism - Rewilding Heart and Home
This is a different kind of activism in a world that does not encourage love and beauty. People will only protect what they love
We celebrate the common ground we all stand upon, we celebrate our communiTree, our love of trees.
We celebrate our ancient and sacred connections with trees and nature.
We promote wellbeing. Founder Amanda Claires' newsletter celebrates trees, creativity, provides nature connection tips and more
We plant and protect trees in UK and the Tropics via our gift card, tee shirts etc.
We are co-Guardians of Wild Spirit Woods in the heart of the UK running workshops and volunteer conservation activities.
The bottom line here is that unless people fall in love with themselves and the world they won't help save it.
People will only protect what they love so spread the love!
"Courting Beauty is Rebellion and Love The Revolution"

We are happy to share Petitions and News on Trees and Tree Protection

We also support campaigns abroad. Although the UK Facebook group can only accept UK trees post we do sometimes make exceptions to share wider support for such disasters as the Australian bushfires.
Campaigns are very welcome in our other groups across the world!
"Thank you all so much for your outpouring of love towards our apocalyptic situation here in Australia."
The moderating team work hard to make sure members see petitions and campaigns. This takes us very many hours a week that we fit in around our families, jobs, and many other responsibilities.
Campaigns that we have actively supported are:
The successful groundbreaking 'Save the Brimmon Oak' campaign instigated by AST member Mervyn Lloyd Jones that rerouted a road
The campaign to get legal protection for ancient yew trees by AST member Janis Fry - see one of my blog posts on this subject here
The ongoing HS2 campaign
Numerous local campaigns such as in Bristol aided by Lawyers for Nature founded by AST member Paul Powesland
Stop The Badger Cull - my blog post here
Stop Netting of Trees and Hedges in nesting season - see my blog post here
Jack In The Green Ethical Gift shop donates in support of Ancient and Sacred Trees. A tree planted with every £5 spent.
Our other Facebook groups across the world are growing and we encourage members to share world campaigns in those groups.
