Oak Tree Journey

An acorn taken from a family’s tree to Australia has returned home 200 years later as a sapling – and it’s been planted in the same village it was taken from. The English oak sapling has come from a tree whose legacy has travelled 20,000 miles to Oz and back again to the just a few miles from where it came from in Yorkshire. In the 1820s the British Government offered land for settlers to populate Western Australia fearing the French might try to land there.
