About this book

A celebration of the beauty and longevity of one of the greatest tree collections in the world - Westonbirt Arboretum - this is the first illustrated book on Westonbirt for nearly twenty years. The National Arboretum at Westonbirt is one of the most spectacular tree gardens in the world. An historical collection of over 3,000 different trees and shrub species, many of which are rare or endangered in their native lands, it covers some 600 acres. Classified as a Grade-I listed landscape, the layout preserves the nineteenth century design by W.S. Gilpin in the picturesque style.

Media reviews

[Sarah Howard] has a particularly acute eye for the grandeur and theatre of some of the planting at the arboretum and this is a beautiful book, which will be a delight to anyone who loves plants and recognises the importance of trees to shaping the Englsih landscape. Sunday Telegraph Beautiful images of one of the world's finest tree collections through the seasons. Gardens Illustrated Sarah Howard has lovingly photographed it throught the seasons and her pictures will make you look at trees in quite a different way. Daily Mail While autumn is a high point, this book is a prompt to visit at other times of year too. BBC Countryfile A celebration of Westonbirt's exquisite national Arboretum, home to some of the oldest, biggest, loveliest trees in the country. These photographs capture the colour and splendour of Westonbirt through the seasons from hazy sun-bleached summer to bare and frosty winter. Bath magazine A very fine debut. The stunning and varied images are supported by an authoritative but accessible commentary that leaves the reader keen to visit. It has been some time since the last illustrated work on Westonbirt, and it may be some time before another is needed: this is one that will stand reprinting many times. House & Garden This is a beautiful book which with its complementary words and outstanding photographs would enhance any coffee-table but it is also one that will give pleasure before or after a visit to Westonbirt.
