Arboretum Explorer: Your Guide to the World's Trees

Westonbirt Arboretum's Arboretum Explorer is an online tool that allows visitors to explore the arboretum's vast collection of trees from all over the world. The Explorer includes a map of the arboretum, a list of all the trees in the collection, and information about each tree, including its scientific name, common name, origin, and description.

With your help, through membership and donations, we support the care of the tree collection that you will find mapped in the Arboretum Explorer. Our charity supports Westonbirt Arboretum in connecting people with trees to improve the quality of life, by providing funding for a variety of projects at the arboretum, including:

- Tree planting and maintenance

- Education and outreach programmes

- Research and seed-collecting projects

To use the Arboretum Explorer, simply go to the website and click on the "Map" tab. This will open a map of the arboretum, with markers for each tree in the collection. You can zoom in and out of the map, and click on the markers to view more information about each tree.

To search for a specific tree, you can use the search bar at the top of the page. You can search by tree name, scientific name, or origin. Once you have found the tree you are looking for, you can click on its name to view more information about it.

The tree information page includes the tree's scientific name, common name, origin, description, and sometimes a photo.

Benefits of using the Arboretum Explorer

The Arboretum Explorer is a valuable tool for anyone who wants to learn more about the trees at Westonbirt Arboretum. It is also a useful tool for planning a visit to the arboretum.

It is also a great resource for students and researchers. It provides information about a wide range of trees, from all over the world. This information can be used for research projects, essays, and presentations.

How to get the most out of the Arboretum Explorer

To get the most out of the Arboretum Explorer, we recommend that you use it in conjunction with a visit to Westonbirt Arboretum. This will allow you to see the trees in person and to experience their beauty firsthand.

When you are visiting the arboretum, we recommend that you make a map of the trees you’d like to see. This will allow you to discover the trees when internet signal drops.

We also recommend that you join one of the guided walks that are offered at the arboretum on a daily basis. The knowledgeable guides will lead you on a tour of the arboretum, and will teach you more about the trees and their history.
