Westonbirt Magazine


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.

Deep in the mountains

Dan Crowley, Westonbirt’s expert dendrologist, regularly works with partners across the globe. Dan gives us a behind the scenes account of his latest trip to Vietnam.
