There's over 600 different species of Oak! Native to the Northern Hemisphere, the oaks have managed to spread vastly with recordings from Asia, Europe, North Africa, Latin, and North America! If you're from North America, the chances are very high that you've came across these beautiful trees as over 90% of their populations based here. Though as beautiful as these trees come, they pack a toxic little bite. Oak trees drop acorns which are poisonous to many things like horses, sheep, cattle, etc. The toxicity steams from tannic acid which causes kidney damage when ingested in large quantities. Some mammals have immunity like squirrels and others in the Sciuridae family. After the removal process of the tannins known as leaching, acorns can be consumed by humans.
Oak trees have been symbolic and even biblical for quite some time, they represent a strong and unmoved force in many accounts. We've attached a painting by John Everett Millais from the year 1852, in this painting titled The Proscribed Royalist, 1651 Millais depicts a young Puritain woman protecting a fleeing Royalist after the Battle of Worcester in 1651. The Royalist whom was hiding in a hollowed tree (a reference to when Charles himself hid in a tree to escape his pursuers) was the local oak tree that later became known as the Millais Oak.
One of the oldest oaks we have is known as the Emancipation Oak at Holwood Park. Photo'd here Anglican bishop Samuel Ajayi Crowther (center) with missionaries.
The scientific classification goes as followed,
Genus : Quercus (which is Latin for Oak Tree)
Tree of the Day is to educate those on different species of trees daily while helping grow them!
The Proscribed Royalist, 1651 by John Everett Millais
We're living in a very important time period. In a time were so much progress has come so fast, its come at the expense of the things we care deeply for. What has happened in the past 150 years has been incredible to say the least, we've taken to the sky and far beyond, put an entire world online, changed communication, and in the process have created a lot of unnecessary waste. In a world of 1-day shipping we don't care how are package arrives as long as we get it fast. It's time we start promoting environmentally sustainable, eco friendly, biodegradable products that won't end up turning to carbon dioxide and methane when they're sent to a landfill after a single use. "EPA posits that each American produces 4.38 pounds of trash everyday" - Susan Sharp (Utexas.edu) with the proper education and resources people can make a much smarter selection of products that will reduce the average amount of trash per person. All of our products are environmentally sustainable, eco friendly, or biodegradable products that will directly help plant trees to combat C02 emissions.
Yale School of Forestry suggest planting 1.2 trillion trees could potentially cancel out a decade of C02 emissions, "Trees are out most powerful weapon in the fight against climate change," - Crowther (Yale.edu).

Logging and forest fires have had a detrimental effect on our atmosphere as felled or burned trees release stored carbon causing it to interact with greenhouse gasses. The effectiveness of a trees regulation is based upon its maturity, it takes a tree a very long time to reach full maturity so it's important we plant several trees for every single tree that has been deforested.
Through the services of OneTreePlanted.org we aim to plant over
50,000 trees in United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
