The Westonbirt Project

We had big ambitions for the Westonbirt Project, the results of which have been truly transformative.

From the STIHL Treetop Walkway to the downs restoration and relocation of the car park, this work has had a huge impact on Westonbirt, the National Arboretum and the way visitors enjoy the site. We can't begin to thank all of our funders and donors enough. You have helped make a remarkable difference to the arboretum.
