Val de la Mare Arboretum
A sponsor has recently come forward to fund some re-planting in the Australasian and Conifer Zones. A final audit has been made of the Eucalypts and the like in the Australasian Zone so we know exactly which varieties of tree and shrub we have. Three rare Eucalyptus hybrids are soon to be planted along with 2 varieties of Leptospermum, some species being known as the Tea Tree. The Conifer Zone is severely depleted of trees, the snow falls last year accounting for the loss of at least 3 specimens. There is scope and space here to plant some 15 trees and interesting species are currently being sourced from nurseries in the UK.
