We organise a number of events each year. They range from guided tree walks to tree planting sessions and are listed below.

The Arboretum co-operates with other local groups and we maintain a joint calendar listing many, different events and experiences.  You can access the joint calendar here

Upcoming Hedgerow Planting

Sunday December 3rd 10:00 Farway Airfield
If you want some healthy outdoor exercise and a satisfying feeling that you are helping our wildlife, please meet at Farway Common Airfield at the top of Hatway Hill, Sidbury, EX10 0QW.  Best approached from Seaton Road along from the Hare and Hounds.  Grid Reference SY 16430 93771, What3Words paddle.lizards.rebounded. 
We start planting at 10:00.  We have 1,500 whips donated by the Airfield, Woodland Trust and East Devon AONB (now rebranded as National Landscape) to create a wildlife hedge alongside the airfield’s species rich grassland. 
It will be great if you can stay all day, but we will be delighted see you for an hour or so if that is all you can manage.  The grass is long and wet and it can be windy up there so appropriate footwear and coat is needed as well as a spade.  James at the airfield has promised light refreshments and, very important, there is a toilet available .

Friday December 15th Stoney Orchard
Please meet at 10:00 and park either Stoney Orchard (What 3 words –  pitchers.daily.entitles) or Knapp Copse Nature Reserve (What 3 words –  soda.tech.paintings).
From Sidmouth drive to the Hare and Hounds and turn right at Putts Corner and follow the Seaton Road for about ¾ mile. Knapp Copse Nature Reserve is signposted on the right and Stoney Orchard is the next entrance on the right.
We will be planting whips donated by Devon Wildlife Trust with the owner.
