Sidmouth Arboretum has embarked on a scheme to label publicly-accessible trees in the Sid Valley.

The team have begun the large task of labelling all publically accessible trees in Sid Valley with QR codes.

QR codes act as a barcode that can be scanned via a smart phone which will then link to the tree’s page on the Arboretum’s website.

Each label will consist of the QR code, catalogue number for the tree on the Arboretum’s website as well as the Latin and English name.

The root of the idea comes from the Arboretum wanting to give the public a better understanding of the nature around.

The first batch of trees to be labelled will be the ones in the garden and park around the Knowle Council Offices.

From there, trees in Blackmore Gardens will be labelled in the coming months before the scheme comes to an end with the three Arboretum Tree Trails.
