Calling all adventurers! TreeQuests is a whole new way to explore Westonbirt, The National Arboretum, to discover trees, and learn some weird and wonderful facts along the way!
There are two game types:
TrailQuest is where adventurers can create their own quest through the Old Arboretum, dog-friendly Silk Wood, or the entire site: you can set your own location and length of quest - taking on a number of interactive challenges along the way. You might be building a bushcraft tower, working out a tree's age, or completing photo challenges - and be rewarded with medals and awards!
TeamQuest has been developed for organised groups and must be booked through the Westonbirt learning team as it requires additional resources to play and a designated Game Leader. It is a timed game, and is based at Silk Wood Barn.
My Arboretum shows the trees you’ve collected, the awards you’ve won and the photos you have taken during your quests.
Explore mode lets you wander Westonbirt freely, finding trees as you come across them. But you can only gain silver medals this way! You’ll need to play TrailQuest to complete the challenges and trade those in for gold!
TreeQuests requires you to have Bluetooth switched on to play.

Now get out there and enjoy some TreeQuests!
We've improved the way we build your quests in order to make exploring Westonbirt even easier and more fun!
Ratings and Reviews
Good, but could be better
We used the app today as a family. Unfortunately the map did not have the aerial walk way on, so the route talk us back on ourselves under the walkway. We then had fun finding some trees till we had lunch. During lunch the app stopped, and when we restarted it it took us to the other side of the woods before bringing us back to where we had been. The kids were not impressed. We then found when going for gold that only the multiple answers appeared on screen without the questions. With a bit of tweaking this app could be really good, but it is not quite there yet.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
