The Art of Trees outdoor exhibition showcases Bedgebury’s tree collection. Using new and unique artworks from the Bedgebury Pinetum Florilegium Society, the free exhibition highlights the beauty and diversity of the pinetum's plants.
In this, the Forestry Commission's centenary year, what better way to celebrate than with an art exhibition of specially created, botanically accurate drawings and paintings set against the backdrop of the National Pinetum's stunning tree collection. Over 100 detailed studies of the National Pinetum's trees, both conifers and broadleaves are on display.

Bedgebury Pinetum Florilegium Society is a group of highly skilled artists who volunteer their time to capture all stages of the life cycle of the Bedgebury tree collection. This unique outdoor exhibition has been created in partnership with the Friends of Bedgebury Pinetum. The composite images created from the artworks are displayed on weather-proof boards framed with Bedgebury timber and are spread out amongst the trees.
