Diminished Tree Species Grant

From The Oak Hill Fund

Established in April 2002, The Oak Hill Fund (OHF) promotes the well-being of mankind through effective and inspiring grantmaking. Their priority areas for funding include environmental causes and women's rights.

Type of Support


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.

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
