Winter Tree Highlights

Winter has its own magical feel. It can be invigorating and windy or still and a little eerie. The deciduous trees have dropped their foliage, leaving evergreens to enjoy centre stage.

Likin' Lichen

Trees provide an ideal home and vital resources for lots of wildlife. Honorary Research Fellow School of Biological Sciences University of Bristol, David Hill, tells us about these incredible fungi.

Winter World

As winter draws in around us, the trees and wildlife of the arboretum prepare for the long haul to spring. It’s a lovely time to explore and there’s always plenty to look out for.

Five Years of Progress

In 2012 we received fantastic news. We had been awarded a £1.9 million Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant towards Phase One of the Westonbirt Project, which would bring significant improvements to the arboretum and our visitors’ experience.

Autumn tree highlights

Visit the arboretum this autumn to surround yourself with a spectrum of marmalade, amber and crimson hues. October is the prime month to see the very best of Autumn, but interesting colours will start to emerge as early as August.
