Disappearing trees - learn more about trees that are currently in danger

Human's have always had an intimate relationship with trees - but unfortunately today some trees are in danger of disappearing all together.

Westonbirt Arboretum currently holds around 100 threatened species, providing an opportunity to study how they grow, which can help inform future decisions on how to care for them.

As part of a Heritage Lottery Funded project this little booklet introduces 40 of our rare trees, explaining why they are disappearing, showing you where to find them within the arboretum, and revealing Westonbirt's role in conserving them.

Developed using funds from Heritage Lottery Fund
