Protecting Westonbirt for future generations

Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum is a charity whose members and supporters help to fund ongoing conservation work and projects that help connect people with trees. This world-class tree collection deserves our support, so that people can continue to enjoy the arboretum for generations to come. None of this would be possible without you.

We work in partnership with the Forestry Commission to ensure that Westonbirt Arboretum can continue to be supported, cared for and enjoyed. By joining us or giving your support to Westonbirt, the National Arboretum, you can be part of the long-term future of this world class conservation site.
