Trees for the Future is our ambitious new tree planting programme at Armadale. And you can be part of it.
Over the next three years we will be planting the next generation of trees in our gardens while we protect some of the world’s most endangered species.
You can support this work now by adopting a tree or sending us a donation.
About the programme
Armadale has been selected as an official Satellite Garden for the conifer conservation programme. This means we are one of a network of ‘safe sites’, specially chosen because we have the right conditions and horticultural skills to care for a living collection of endangered trees.
Conifers are of major importance worldwide and over 34% of all conifer species are threatened. As a satellite garden we will be planting 140 young conifers during 2021-24. Many of these are rare and threatened in their native habitat. The trees are grown in Edinburgh from seeds collected in the wild under strictly controlled licence arrangements.
