Caring for the trees of the Sid Valley
Sidmouth Arboretum was launched in May 2010 in order to create a civic arboretum, which covers all the land both public and private within the jurisdiction of Sidmouth Town Council. An arboretum is a collection of woody plants, which are trees and shrubs. A civic arboretum on this scale is a unique concept.
Website moveThe website has moved to a new hosting provider. Please bear with us during the transition. Thank you
We now meet on the second Tuesday of every month 5.30- 7pm and all are welcome to ask questions, find answers, learn what we do and want to do. Occasional trees and shrubs available. We meet at the Leigh Browne Room, side entrance to the Unitarian Meeting Hall in the centre of Sidmouth, across from Tesco and the Post Office.
There is wide support from the Sid Valley communities including the Sid Vale Association.
We aim to:
- acknowledge our rich heritage of parkland trees;
- guide and encourage new planting,
- enhance the visual welcome to coast and countryside.
We need to ensure a rich green canopy for environmental and economic reasons, and so that our children can inherit a green and pleasant landscape.
We invite you to:
- Add to our Best Loved Tree by nominating your favourite specimen.
- Join in the Tree guided walks.
- Help plant and maintain our trees.
- Tell us where you would like to see more planting.
The best time to plant a tree is 25 years ago. The second best is today.
