arboretum

 

An arboretum is a collection of ligneous plants that include trees and bushes.

Jean-Marie Pelt garden's arboretum offers examples of forest vegetation in temperate regions by geographical origin, from west to east, following the reading of a planisphere. A huge arc begins above the rose garden with American essences and ends at the alpinum with the Asian species.

The arboretum is bordered by meadows that are mown late in the season. Winding mown paths through the tall grasses guide and invite visitors to explore the collection. It’s a world tour that begins in South America and ends in Japan. Along the paths you’ll see some outstanding species such as the Nothofagus and Pinus longaeva, a tree that lives for a remarkably long time (4700 years).
