A fond farewell
During my time at Westonbirt, I could not have foreseen the challenges that were to face the Arboretum. However, I am proud to have seen the resilience of the staff on site and you our members and shareholders in the face of significant adversity.
Winter highlight: Incense cedar
Our December tree of the month is the Incense cedar (Calocedrus decurrens), one of the most fire and drought-tolerant plants from California.
