Out of the trunks of trees

Roger Gorst, a long-standing friend of Westonbirt Arboretum, has kindly sent us this fascinating insight into the many uses of the products extracted from trees.

A record breaking result

It was another glorious evening for the Westonbirt 10k this May. Amongst the runners were over 100 dedicated fundraisers, running for the trees to support our charitable work caring for the arboretum.

Becoming a guide...

Just three years ago I was encouraged to train as a Westonbirt guide.

Farewell to Dan Crowley

It is with great sadness and pride that we have to announce that after nine years at Westonbirt our Dendrologist, Dan Crowley, will be leaving us in September for a new and exciting opportunity, to study for a Master’s Degree in Plant Diversity.

Summer tree highlights

Westonbirt has been actively participating in wild seed collecting expeditions since 2005. Staff members representing the arboretum have travelled to parts of Asia, Europe, North and South America on the quest for tree seed.
