Discover a tree collection from around the world in the New Forest
Tree felling underway
We’re removing some trees from this area of woodland, this is essential thinning to give remaining trees more space to grow. Public safety is our main priority, so we ask people to follow safety signage and not enter the areas where machinery is working.
Blackwater arboretum remains open, it's an idyllic and peaceful place, and has a stunning variety of beautiful trees from around the world. Inspired by the tree collection at this special place, a sensory sculpture trail complements the setting.
Explore Blackwater on two wheels by following the New Forest’s great network of cycle trails.
