Tree Information x

Identifier: HBR/1750
Tree Type: Single
Registered By: Hill, R.N.
Registration Category: Notable tree – National interest
General Notes:
Most of the large-statured trees in the park could be attributed to the early plantings carried out by Mr. Williams after purchasing the land in the late 1800s. This box elder is likely to be one such example; a large specimen with a very broad canopy (Hill, R.N., 2021).
