Autumn 2017

This history of STIHL

STIHL and Westonbirt Arboretum have been partners since 2006. In 2016 STIHL became the proud sponsors of the Treetop Walkway. They continue to support the work in the arboretum by providing the tree team with chainsaws and other essential pieces of kit.

A hidden gem in Gloucestershire

As a Friend of Westonbirt you have free access to various arboretums and gardens across the UK. One of our nearest partners is Batsford Arboretum in Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire.

Celebrating 25 years

Helen Daniels, one of our lovely administrators, celebrates 25 years with the Forestry Commission. We caught up with Helen to discuss her time here.

Inspiring the next generation

At Westonbirt, we are committed to protecting the many amazing trees we care for at the arboretum. But as well as our arboricultural work, we never lose sight of the need to inspire our next generation of nature lovers.

A year in the life of a student arborist

In July 2016, the arboretum took on two eager student arborists. Time has flown by, and a year on we ask Seth, one of the students, about his Westonbirt experience.
