With the help of the many generous donations from visitors and Friends, we’ve reached the £1.9 million fundraising target for Phase Two of the Westonbirt Project.
This means the plans for a Treetop Walkway and The Wolfson Tree Management Centre are now coming to life, improving the arboretum for everyone.
