The arboretum

 

Nearly fifteen trees have been planted in the arboretum since 1990.

 

A cedrus atlantica glauca, a swamp oak (quercus palustris), a sequoïa (transported at the time in the boot of the car!), a metasequoïa, a fabulous copper beech, a maple, a japanese larch, a Lord Weymouth pine tree, an Abies Koreana, a Deodora Cedar Deodara, a Calocedrus……all these attract the attention of visitors, interested to learn what those original trees have become, twenty years after planting.
