A history of Treefest

Treefest has developed from Westonbirt's Festival of the Tree which incorporated the Sculptree carvings and charity auction.

Woodcarver bo Peep. TreefestNow carving, family activities, woodcraft and exhibitors are all included in the one event.

After 17 years as the Festival of the Tree's main partner for the Sculptree auctions, charity Tree Aid, decided in 2011 to go its seperate way to focus on other fundraising initiatives.

The popular tree carving element of the Festival of the Tree continues at Treefest, with big carving takes place across the Bank Holiday weekend.
