Help us replant our trees
Find out how you can help us replace the trees that we have sadly lost due to ash dieback.
What is Ash dieback?
Ash dieback is a serious disease that was identified here in Britain in 2012 and has spread rapidly both here and in the rest of Europe. Once a tree is affected it is usually fatal, either directly from the disease or by weakening the trees’ resistance to other pests and pathogens.
What is our solution?
Many of the ash trees at Glyndebourne were sadly affected by the disease and so over the winter we have had to fell the majority of them which has left us with a big project of replanting parts of our woodland. At Glyndebourne we are committed to looking after the nature around us, it is a large part of what makes our opera house unique with the flora and fauna coming alive during the summer months.
As part of this commitment, we will be working on creating an attractive new entrance into Glyndebourne called ‘The Hornbeam Avenue’, featuring an array of trees put together by our dedicated and hardworking Gardening department.
