Diminished Tree Species

"When we try to pick out anything by itself,
we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe."

-John Muir

The Oak Hill Fund believes that restoring native tree species will directly improve our natural ecosystems, as well as our society. If we don't preserve all of these unique species and their habitats, we stand to lose an incredible biological resource. Support will be limited to the continental United States.  Projects that involve collaborative approaches will have higher preference. We hope to support the following efforts:
  • Active restoration of diminished continental U.S. forest species (examples include Eastern Hemlock, Balsam Fir, American Chestnut and Longleaf Pine.)
  • Protection of native tree habitat through forest land preservation (can include property easements, as well as creation of newly preserved lands through either state/federal acquisition.)
  • Support of science-based research, seed orchard development and other associated expenses involved in species restoration.
