Warm up for a colourful winter at the National Arboretum
Get ready to warm up this July as the Warm Trees Knitted Installation returns to the National Arboretum. Once again, the majestic trees of the Himalayan Cedar forest will be wrapped in colourful knitted scarves.
But wait- there's more. This year also features the world's largest handcrafted frieze of colourful tulips, decorated bicycle wheels, knitting and crochet drop-in sessions, bicycle maintenance workshops plus guided bike rides for all ages will be held throughout the month of July.
Warm Trees is the combined effort of hundreds of knitters, crocheters and crafters of all ages. And it's brought to you by the Friends of the National Arboretum Canberra and Pedal Power. The diplomatic partner is the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the theme colour is orange which represents the royal colour for the Netherlands.

The Friends of the Arboretum have already been asked to stop wrapping trees up with knitted crochet, the trees don’t need them and they are hazardous to wildlife chocking them, getting tangled in them etc, they certainly aren’t friends to wildlife. Stop wrapping items around trees
