Database of Sidmouth trees completed for Aboretum
A database of the 100 most interesting, unusual and ancient trees in Sidmouth has now been completed.
The Chamber of Commerce have funded the project, which will be officially launched in May, and will contain the owners name, Latin name and location.
The arboretum’s scope is all of the land which lies within Sidmouth Town Council’s jurisdiction, and are available to the public.
The chamber asked for residents to put submissions for the database, which has now been compiled and is ready for unveiling.
They hope setting up the database is the first step towards making Sidmouth the world’s first civic arboretum.
