Please help us plan the next 100 years of Bedgebury National Pinetum!

Forestry England would be grateful if you could share your thoughts on visiting Bedgebury National Pinetum and places like it via this short survey.  This will allow us to better understand who currently visits the Pinetum and why so that we can better adapt our offer for current and new audiences in future.  This research does not focus on the wider Bedgebury Forest outside the National Pinetum (cycling trails, Go Ape etc).

About Bedgebury National Pinetum

Question Title

Bedgebury National Pinetum represents one of the finest collections of conifers in the world.  Walk through a beautiful landscape of over 12,000 specimen trees, escape the stresses of everyday life and learn about our conservation work.

Seeds collected from the wild by the tree team are raised in the Bedgebury nursery.  This produces trees for the collection to protect and provides an international network of botanic gardens with seedlings of threatened tree species for conservation.  The National Pinetum was established in 1925 and includes trees much older than this.

Purpose of the survey

To better understand why people visit or don’t visit Bedgebury National Pinetum to inform future planning and development of the site as it approaches its centenary in 2025.

How we use the data

The survey questions are designed not to capture any personally identifiable information.  Your responses will be collated on a question by question basis and used by our contracted partners Resources for Change as evidence to inform an Audience Development Plan.  This will be used primarily by Forestry England, though may be shared with potential funders.  We may use your anonymous comments in, but not limited to, Forestry England promotional material and funding applications.

 Completion of this feedback is entirely optional.
