Montebello Tree Walk

Please come and visit our Tree Walk. We are celebrating our trees and their BEAUTY and DIVERSITY. Some were planted in the mid 17th century but most planted by Ralph Henry Arderne in the mid 19th century along with the much loved ARDERNE GARDENS ON Claremont main road, many of the trees are identical and form part of the history of tree planting at the Cape reflecting the Victorian idea of “gardens from around the world in your garden”. They are mostly therefore EXOTIC COMING FROM OTHER PARTS OF South Africa and around the Globe. Chosen for their RESILIENCE to our Mediterranean climate they now help, as all trees do, to mitigate CLIMATE CHANGE in our City by providing shade and reducing temperatures.

 

WE HOPE YOU ENJOY OUR LITTLE URBAN FOREST
