Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum

A tree for dreamers at Treefest

Posted: August 14, 2012 at 12:20 pm Author: Joe Nagle

At last years’ Treefest the Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum invited visitors to put their dreams on the leaves of The Tree of Dreams.

Some are funny like this one scrawled by a youthful hand:

“I wish I had 14 chocolate bars every day.”

Others are deeply poignant:

“Peace in a troubled world for young and old.”

While many more are just plain strange:

“I wish the world was made of chocolate” ...

as if we didn’t have enough problems with global warming!


All of you dreamers who gave us your hopes and your wishes can join us again at Treefest. Come to the Tree of Dreams to find what you wished for last time and write down a new one for this coming year.

Not only can you come to make a wish but you can also find out how you can help to make Westonbirt’s dreams come true.

Make sure you visit the Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum’s marquee to chat to our volunteers, see our plans for the future and hear about the work we do to make sure the arboretum survives for our children and grandchildren.
