Courting Beauty is Rebellion and Love The Revolution
Quote from Amanda C Vesty
This is a different kind of activism in a world that does not encourage love and beauty. People will only protect what they love so this is what AST is all about.
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 are cultural change makers.
The bottom line here is that unless we do this form of activism people won't engage with the second form of activism below.
People will only protect what they love so spread the love!

Of course we do this traditional kind of AcTreevism as well. Members are actively encouraged to share petitions in the Facebook groups.

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 the other groups across the world too.
"Thank you all so much for your outpouring of love towards our apocalyptic situation here in Australia."

Myself and 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 or supporting are:
Save the Brimmon Oak campaign instigated by AST member Mervyn Lloyd Jones
The ongoing 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
Treespect CIC led by Rob McBride Tree Hunter works with communities to educate them about how best to protect their trees. Treespect was first on the ground at the Sheffield trees massacre way before the big charities. AST is very proud to support them. Jack In The Green Ethical Gift shop donates in support of Treespect.
There is also an onsite DirecTree so charity campaigns are being added over time. This website is run on a voluntary unpaid basis so this make take a little while to build up. Offers of help will be gladly accepted.
Our other Facebook groups are growing and we encourage members to share world campaigns in those groups.
The moderating team are all volunteers and they work tirelessly to care for the online groups.
