Broad Arboretum

What can I see?

  • 49 native species, along with recent introductions such as walnut, sycamore and chestnut.
  • Wildlife enjoying the haven of trees, shrubs and hedgerows – look out for yellowhammer and fieldfare, and listen for the call of the corn bunting which sounds like chinking keys.
  • Beautiful colours – the best time of year to visit the arboretum is in autumn.

What’s special about this place?

  • The arboretum was named after Ken Broad of the Oxfordshire Woodland Group (OWG). Ken was the first Oxfordshire Woodland Project Manager and worked in partnership with the Earth Trust to design and plant this collection of trees.
  • We keep the trees healthy by coppicing and laying the hedgerows in the winter.
