Virtual Gifts: Safeguarding seeds

The work taking place at Westonbirt extends far beyond the reaches of the arboretum.

Safeguarding seeds gift card

Seed collecting in warmer climates is a vital aspect of our work to safeguard forests and woodlands. In the UK, a warming climate is already placing trees used to cooler conditions under strain.

Westonbirt's experts work with partners across the globe to extensively research and collect seeds from warmer locations to see how they perform in the UK. Contributing to the UK's national seed back and growing trial species, we are working to combat the depletion of woodland coverage as native species die out.

With certain species taking hundreds of years to mature, it's vital that we act now to conduct this essential research.

This gift is a great way to give back to nature, supporting vital seed collection to safeguard forests and woodlands.

All funds raised from this gift will go to support Westonbirt's tree management and propagation programme.
