Our Plant Hunters' Fairs are now an established item on the calendar at The National Memorial Arboretum and you will find us along Yeomanry Avenue our regular home from now on.

Come along and buy some wonderful plants - you can leave them with the nurserymen whilst you explore this inspiring venue and pop back later to collect them.

The Arboretum is a unique haven of peace, contemplation and hope for the future and is the site of the Armed Forces Memorial. It consists of 150 acres of wooded parkland within the National Forest in Staffordshire where visitors can both enjoy and learn about the trees and their surroundings, and reflect upon their special symbolism. Many of the memorials are placed in peaceful gardens.

Although still a 'young' arboretum, there are already in excess of 50,000 trees on the site which are rapidly growing into a unique living tribute.

The variety of habitats within the Arboretum site illustrate the biodiversity of the area. Birds and animals include several species highlighted in the Staffordshire Biodiversity Action Plan - these include the skylark, lapwing, brown hare, otter and several species of bat.

The Arboretum has a lot to offer both young and old. Come for a day out to enjoy the peace and tranquility, the trees, the memorials, the history, the sense of national pride. Have lunch or drinks in the Restaurant; above all enjoy the experience.
