Make a difference at Westonbirt Arboretum

There are many ways you can make a change for good at Westonbirt Arboretum. With 15,000 trees to care for and protect, every little bit makes a positive contribution to the future of Westonbirt as well as our planet.

Our charity not only supports the trees but also the people who come to visit. Whether visitors take part in events, trails and guided tours or simply wander around the arboretum using the navigation signs or maps, the Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum directly contributes to these activities which provide enjoyment and education to all.

We also fundraise for special projects, such as the Biffa Award Welcome Building and Stihl Treetop Walkway, which are considered architectural highlights amongst the trees for many people. We have just finished fundraising for a Quarantine House to adapt and tackle the global challenges we face when sourcing new seeds and are looking forward to seeing this project as well as the Coppice Shelter and Community Shelter come to life over the coming months.
