Oak Tree Initiative

Mace’s Chelsea Barracks team have had a long and close relationship with Royal Hospital Chelsea (home of the Chelsea Pensioners) since the project started.

The most recent initiative that Mace have partnered with the hospital for is the “Tree of Friendship” scheme.

Mace have purchased 20 Boscobel Oak tree saplings to symbolise the Chelsea Hospital’s relationship with the former Chelsea Barracks site and the historical link to the Hospital’s founder King Charles II, where “Colonel William Carlos hid founder King Charles II in the Boscobel Oak after the battle of Worcester in 1651, thereby saving the King’s life”.

The oak trees will be put in planters and placed around welfare facilities and all costs for the saplings plus an additional donation will be made to the hospital.
