Import substitution for Oak (Quercus Species)

The HTA launches a report today on import substitution of oak trees (Quercus species). Since 2013, the UK has imported 1.12 million oak trees, according to official Defra statistics. There is a great opportunity for the UK to increase production of this iconic tree, thereby boosting the economy and improving biosecurity. The report identifies the reasons for the high import levels of oak, and suggests collaborative solutions for industry and government to address them. The main challenges are to improve supply chain efficiency, improve public procurement and market conditions, and encourage better sourcing of UK-grown trees. The horticulture industry exhibit…

They are Edwardian poet Edward Thomas’s ‘lost angels of ruined paradises’. Thought to have been brought here by the Romans for their delicious juicy fruits, mulberries were part of monastery gardens and palaces over the years. King James I planted thousands to break free of the need to import silk from Europe…
