The Yorkshire Arboretum is offering half-price entry to all who visit between Saturday 19 and Wednesday 30 November, to commemorate National Tree Week 2022. Visitors can purchase admission online through the arboretum’s website or pay on arrival.
National Tree Week is the UK’s largest annual tree celebration, running from Saturday 26 November to Monday 5 December 2022. Organised by The Tree Council, it encourages people across the country to come together to plant trees to mark the start of the winter tree planting season.
Yorkshire Arboretum Director Dr John Grimshaw says: “We are delighted to take part in this national campaign by offering half-price entry to the arboretum before we close for the 2022 season. National Tree Week is vital in raising awareness of the need to plant new trees to combat climate change and nurture those we already have.”
The Tree Health Centre at The Yorkshire Arboretum is holding a half day course to promote tree planting. Suitable for all abilities, ‘Garden Trees: Best Start to Planting’ takes place on Thursday 17 November. Further details are available online at www.treehealthcentre.org.
Open daily from 10am until 3pm during November, The Yorkshire Arboretum closes for the 2022 season at the end of the month, reopening on 1 February 2023. During December and January, the team at the arboretum continue to work on winter projects including tree planting. The Visitor Centre and Peter Sowerby Building are available for private hire throughout the year.
