This is an arboretum restoration project in progress! We are working hard with volunteers to restore, replant and maintain the arboretum following years of abandonment. We have created paths and cleared around trees so they can flourish and be enjoyed, and are improving labelling and signage. It’s still wild in places, and we plan to keep it that way because it’s part of what makes this place unique. Moreover, it’s also great for wildlife.
