The 300 acre Pinetum contains over 12,000 trees and shrubs (including 1,800 different species) from across five continents, many of them rare and endangered. It is now considered the largest and most complete collection of conifers in the world, something we can be very proud of as a nation. Bedgebury Pinetum is not just here to preserve threatened conifers, it is here to conserve them and that happens by understanding every species in its entirety and then sharing this information.

Over 400 conifer species are in need of conservation measures and some are now virtually extinct in the wild. The Pinetum’s goal has never been more important and in understanding conifers in a global context we have been able to bring about other benefits such as building partnerships with countries like China and Japan. We also have a much better understanding of which species to grow, and where, in order to appease our insatiable appetite for timber.
