The way forward
Our 100-year Masterplan will position us to provide a long-term haven for species protection, research and propagation for repatriation when required.
The Masterplan & The Arboreal Ark™
We call this place and process, our Arboreal Ark™. The Ark shall protect and ensure species security for the 67 countries the collection currently represents. We shall endeavour to position the Arboretum to be able to react when requested in the inevitable increase of rare and threatened trees not currently found within the collection and from those geographic locations not currently represented within our Arboretum.
