Every year we hold a Celebration of Trees near to National Tree Week at the end of November and beginning of December.

We had a good crowd in 2022.

This year we are expanding to have more space and combining it with a Free Tree Giveaway in conjunction with Devon Wildlife Trust’s Saving Devon’s Treescapes project.

Tree Giveaway and Celebration December 9th
On 9th December from 11:00-13:00, the Arboretum will be giving away free young trees at Kennaway House. These have been provided by Devon Wildlife Trust Saving Devon Treescapes project. They are mostly small trees suitable for gardens, so please come and get yourself some and plant and look after them.

Also at Kennaway we will have other attractions from 11:00-16:00.
Demonstrations of woodcrafts and hurdle making by EDDC countryside rangers.
