One of the greatest pleasures of Welwyn Garden City is the beauty and variety of over 19,000 trees in its streets and public places. The ‘City of Trees’ project (an urban arboretum) will celebrate this legacy. Information about the trees is to be collated by volunteers and, with the help of Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council, will be used to develop a series of walks, with related maps, featuring interesting areas of tree planting and individual trees of particular interest.
This will be delivered to the public via a website and printed material. The information will also provide an educational resource for schools.
