We are the Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum.
We're a charity with over 35,000 members and supporters.
We help support Westonbirt Arboretum, with over 15,000 trees and 600 acres of woodland.
Our vision is of a long and sustainable future for Westonbirt, The National Arboretum, for the good of the environment and people.
Our mission is to raise funds to support the arboretum, working with our partners in Forestry England. We fund ongoing maintenance, new developments and innovative projects, helping the arboretum to thrive.
Westonbirt Arboretum is not only an important environmental and educational resource for those who live locally, but performs work that has national and international benefits. At Westonbirt Arboretum we train expert arborists who will help care for woodlands and forests across the UK, and we take part in climate change research that benefits worldwide environmental understanding.
