Westonbirt, The National Arboretum in Gloucestershire, managed by the Forestry Commission, is known globally for its outstanding collection of trees and shrubs. Created in the Victorian era, its 16,000 trees (including 2,500 different species) attract over 350,000 visitors a year who come to see specimens from the UK, China, North America, Japan and Chile, spring rhododendrons and azaleas or the stunning turning leaf colours in autumn.
These visitors range from families on a day out to academics who have travelled miles to investigate a particular tree or species. However, with over 17 miles of pathways within the arboretum, it was difficult for any of them, whatever their purpose, to pinpoint certain trees or plan an individual route.
Eye-TREE Lite was therefore specially customised for Westonbirt, allowing them to provide the facilities for the public to investigate all their tree collections and plan there visit in advance.
