The National Capital Authority has the slightly confusing news that they’re planting a formal entrance to the Lindsay Pryor National Arboretum, not to be confused with the National Arboretum> further up the hill.
Thirty-six deciduous trees will be planted at the entrance to the Lindsay Pryor National Arboretum this week.
Weather permitting, the National Capital Authority will today begin planting the 1.6 metre Pin Oaks (Quercus palustris ‘Free Fall’).
“These trees will formalise the entrance to the Lindsay Pryor National Arboretum,” said Mr Gary Rake, NCA Chief Executive.
“It is one of a series of actions to come out of the master plan, which was completed by the NCA in May this year, following community consultation in 2010.
“Other works include tree pruning, a new entry road, conversion of an old amenities block into a picnic shelter and commencement of design for a new toilet block,” he said.
The Pin Oaks will be planted in a row on either side of the entrance avenue, with a second row of trees to be planted closer to the road early next year.
