Toast to the White Oak

The NWTF is partnering with the American Forest Foundation, Buffalo Trace Distillery, Independent Stave Co. – Log Procurement & Sales, University of Kentucky, and many more stakeholders as part of the White Oak Initiative to help Rescue our White Oak Forests. We risk losing what we thought was a resilient tree species as Regeneration and Recruitment of saplings is failing. This will cause a potential catastrophic change to wildlife communities and native fauna that depend on the White Oak, which is considered as the most ecologically important tree species in the Eastern US.
