9 грудня 2012 року під час робіт арбористів по догляду і зміцненню крони Дуба Патріарха взяли живці. Весною 2013 року їх нащепили на сіянці звичайного дуба на півдні Волині. У 2019 році на щепленому Дубі вперше було кілька жіночих квіток. Їх запилили пилком дуба Патріарха Полісся із Рівненської області якому теж понад тисячу років. На жаль, зав'язі осипалися. Але початок є і - "процес пішов". І Дуби Патріархи будуть збережені і таким шляхом.
