(Right, an early plan of the Arboretum). In this aspect of the project, we are keen to explore various aspects of the landscaping, trees and plants. For example, to what extent does the current tree planting differ from the original plan ing in The Arboretum? How did the flora and fauna within the green spaces alter through the decades since these green spaces were established.
Although The Arboretum is of particular interest, we are keen to explore the landscaping and changing flora and fauna for all the green spaces since they were established in the 19th century, including the cemeteries.
