Yorkshire Arboretum News

Tree Health Centre Development Preparations for the construction of the Tree Health Centre are underway and we are keen to keep you updated. Throughout 2020 we will be publishing regular blog entries on our website as new milestones are reached. These will of course be shared across our social media channels, and we hope you will join us every step of the way.
We have been very fortunate in raising sufficient funds to enable us to go ahead with construction of the Tree Health Centre, but to realise this important project fully we need further financial support. We are seeking another £150,000 and are actively working to raise this, but any help you can give would be most welcome. This might be in the form of a donation or a recommendation of a potential funding source – please do get in touch if you feel you are able to contribute in some way.
Supporters of the arboretum have been extremely generous so far, donating £10,000 towards our target, for which we’re extremely grateful.
For further information, or how you can help, please visit the Tree Health Centre website.
Open Gardens 2020 Our 2020 Open Gardens programme is shaping up to be our biggest to date, with 23 gardens opening from April through to September. We also have a very special tour of York Museum Gardens for season ticket holders on 9th July, and our annual plant sale at the arboretum on 7th June. Keep an eye on our website and on future newsletters for updates. Tickets will be on sale early in the season, with our annual Open Gardens leaflet also available.
And Finally…
Please do continue to follow us on social media. We will be active throughout the winter and keeping you up to date with new and exciting plans for our next season. We look forward to welcoming you back on 1st March 2020, when the Visitor Centre will reopen with full café service. Yorkshire Arboretum Members can enjoy members’ entry from 1st February 2020, but the Visitor Centre and café will not be open during this time.
