Friends of the Arboretum

Becoming a Friend of the Arboretum is a wonderful way to make a long term commitment in support of the Yorkshire Arboretum. Please see our Friends' page for further details. 

Corporate Membership

As a small, independent charitable trust, the Yorkshire Arboretum is entirely reliant on the generosity of individuals, groups and organisations of all sizes to continue with its work of conservation, education and providing a beautiful space for public enjoyment. We welcome the involvement of corporate partners in our work in a variety of ways: membership, staff volunteering and secondments, sponsorship and gifts in kind are just a few of the options available.

Becoming a corporate partner is a clear demonstration of your commitment to the environment, wildlife, conservation and sustainability. Your staff will feel good about the organisation they work for, and you'll give a positive impression to your customers, suppliers and the communities in which you operate.

We have a range of partnership packages available or if you'd like to support the work of the arboretum via a non-financial donation we'd be delighted to discuss your ideas. In the first instance please contact or phone 01653 648598.
