Arboretum Wespelaar is OPEN on Wednesdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm (you can exit the Arboretum until 6pm through the parking), until November 13th, 2016, included. Groups are also welcome on other days on request (with guide). For more practical informations, please go to "Contact and visits".
We had to wait longer than usual for the autumn colors to appear, but now the Arboretum is filled with beautiful vibrant colors. The trees and shrubs needed a few cold nights in order to form a cork layer at the base of each leaf. This then reduces water and mineral intake in the leaf, which in turn degrades the chlorophyll and reveals the underlying pigments. When the cork layer is fully formed, the leaf falls of. Autumn has arrived. If you want to enjoy the beautiful colors of the Japanese maples, Stewartia pseudocamellia and Lindera obtusiloba in the Marnef Wood or the yellow Betula grossa in the Verlat Wood, you should quickly come and visit us as November 13th is our last opening day of this season.
