Bedgebury Pinetum is the National Pine Tree Collection set in some beautiful grounds and adjoins the Bedgebury Forest, and they wish to encourage well behaved dogs to visit - unlike many places who are banning dogs.

Funds are being raised to build a new visitor and education centre, and, we hope, a dog washing station in the car park so dogs and wellies can be cleaned off before getting back into the cars where dog owners will be provided with a shady area to park - this is much needed!

Amongst other conifers that provide a unique living gene bank for medical innovation is a Yew tree that yields ten times more Taxol, a new drug for the treatment of ovarian cancer, than any previous found - so not only does Bedgebury provide peaceful surroundings it is also proving beneficial to health in other ways
