The Resilience Garden

Show Gardens

Commissioned to celebrate the Forestry Commission’s centenary, the garden looks ahead to the challenges facing forests of the future. It explores how our woodlands can be made resilient to a changing climate and the increasing threats of pests and diseases.
Set within the British countryside, visitors to the garden can expect to learn about these challenges, and what action is being taken to ensure our forests are healthy for generations to come. The garden will feature exotic species alongside native species – specially selected to thrive in habitats that mimic existing and probable effects of climate change.
The Forestry Commission wants to inspire a collective appreciation of forests. The Resilience Garden will demonstrate why trees and woods are important, the pressures they face, and that we need to be innovative and bold to protect our landscapes for nature, and for future generations to enjoy.

In partnership with Animal and Plant Health Agency.
