By Supporting a Square

Another way in which you can support the Arboretum and ensure that everyone can enjoy it both now and in the future is by becoming a part of the attraction yourself.
Every single acre of Westonbirt Arboretum needs continual care and whether you want to celebrate an event, commemorate someone or something, or just show your support, you can do so by Supporting a Square and naming a plot for £25 a year.

By becoming part of the Leaves of Life sculpture

You can also celebrate a special moment by becoming a part of the Leaves of Life sculptures.

You can leave a lasting memory by inscribing one of Westonbirt Arboretum’s metal leaves, which will then be added to the Leaves of Life sculpture in the Great Oak Hall where it will stay year after year for people to enjoy.

The personalised leaves are a perfect way to commemorate those you care about or celebrate a special occasion and cost £280.
