A Spotlight On: Trees at the Arboretum

An insight into identification of some of the 30,000 trees at the Arboretum.

Although still a ‘young’ Arboretum, there are already about 30,000 trees in the grounds which are growing rapidly into a unique living tribute. Both British native species and specimens can be found amongst our 30,000 plus trees within the Arboretum, as well as trees from temperate regions around the world.

You will find examples of dogwood, tulip trees, cork oaks, black pines, Dawn Redwoods, London plane trees and Horse Chestnuts amongst many others.

Our trees are planted to enhance the symbolism found across the Arboretum. Everything is planned and considered and these living memorials create a tranquillity and sense of peace across the 150-acre site. In this talk you will learn how to identify some of these trees and their stories.
