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.

Westonbirt walkies in the sun

Hi, my name is Charlotte. Last weekend my mum, sister and I visited Westonbirt for a walk with our border collie, Alfie.

Size matters (but it isn’t everything!)

On a recent journey back from Slovenia, Westonbirt Volunteer Pauline Thomas couldn't resist the temptation to explore the Bayerischer Wald in Bavaria in search of an even bigger treetop walkway than our own. But would bigger mean better?

Exclusive opportunity: Sponsor a superior specimen

In preparation for the Forestry Commission’s centenary in 2019, we’re delighted to introduce a rare and exciting opportunity to sponsor a tree centrally placed within the arboretum.
