Planting for the Future

Saturday 25 November – Sunday 3 December is National Tree Week – the UK’s largest tree celebration annually launching the start of the winter tree planting season. National Tree Week is a great chance for people and communities to do something positive for their local treescape.

Help Compton Verney care for our existing tree collection, and plant some more trees, by donating to our Planting for the Future Campaign.


Planting for the Future

Managing Compton Verney’s historic ‘Capability’ Brown landscape is an ongoing, expensive job.

One of our many tasks is maintaining and nurturing our mature tree collection. We are also always looking for new opportunities to plant additional trees. This is partly to restore the historic feel of the landscape, where trees are carefully chosen and situated to make the design of the park make sense. But also, and just as importantly, to benefit the wide variety of wildlife that uses our park.

As a charity, we need your support to care for our tree collection and to plant more trees.



On Tuesday 28 November, it is #GivingTuesday – a day when people are encouraged to give to charity, straight after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is a movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the Christmas and holiday season.

Compton Verney, as a registered charity, is taking part in #GivingTuesday. We are encouraging visitors to give to our Planting for the Future Campaign. We hope you will support us.
