Arboricultural questions

Westonbirt Arboretum receives many arboricultural questions from visitors and organisations - here's a guide to what we can help with.

The tree and propagation team at Westonbirt are able to answer questions relating to trees found within the arboretum, but unfortunately due to resource limitations we are unable to answer queries outside of this remit.

Depending on the nature of your enquiry, the following organisations may be able to help with your arboricultural questions (please note that charges may apply).
