The Yorkshire Arboretum

The Yorkshire Arboretum, run by the Castle Howard Arboretum Trust in conjunction with Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, is a glorious 120 acre garden of trees from around the world set in a stunning landscape of parkland, lakes and ponds on the Castle Howard Estate.

The impressive collection of trees have been sourced from temperate regions around the world; including Chile and Australasia as well as North America, Europe and Asia. The finished result is a spectacular display of rare trees, alongside native plants and wildlife for everyone to enjoy as a place of inspiration, education and conservation.

On a day-to-day basis a small team of staff, alongside a large number of dedicated volunteers, maintain the arboretum under the management of Trust Director, John Grimshaw.

The Trust which administers the Yorkshire Arboretum was established in 1997 as a partnership between Kew Gardens and Castle Howard Estate. Throughout its history it has been dependent on grants, donations and goodwill to function effectively and continues to rely on this support today.
