Work continues on University Park Arboretum


May 2nd, 2018

The University of Nottingham is undertaking a series of phased improvement works to the University’s Arboretum, on University Park campus.

The improvement works aim to maintain and improve the health of the existing tree stock, to identify and carry out essential arboricultural works to ensure longevity and the safety of users.

Alongside these works will be a new programme of tree planting to enhance the campus.

The latest phase of improvement works commenced Monday 7 May 2018 and will see the planting of 98 specimen trees focusing enhancements on the approach to the Main Visitor Car Park, the Cripps Hill Roundabout and along key routes.

The new planting aims to deliver bold spring and autumnal interest through glades of Japanese Maples backed by the foliage of conifers including Cedars and Gingkos to a new Cherry Walk to deliver a stunning spring-time display of blossom.

Planting will also include less common species such as Giant Redwood to enhance the Arboretum Collection.
