Tree lovers can learn more about planting, general arboriculture and tree management issues at a talk on Tuesday 17 April.

Starting at 6pm from the bar in Imperial Gardens, people are welcome to come along free of charge to take part in the conducted tree tour.

Led by the council's senior trees officer Chris Chavasse, the walk and talk will focus on the new trees that have been planted.

Chris said:  “We will identify the trees, discuss their lifecycles and survival mechanisms and answer any questions people have. Whatever the weather,  unless of course there is an electrical storm, I hope that people will come along and take part in what will be an interesting tour around these beautiful gardens.''

The walk will last for about one hour.
