Home publication [Archive] Forest gardens

The five forest gardens which form the subject of this Bulletin are Cockle Park, near Morpeth, Northumberland; Cirencester, Gloucestershire; Abbotswood, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire; Alice Holt, Hampshire; and Ceiriog, Denbighshire. Each garden consists of a series of experimental plots laid out for purposes of study and for the comparison of the rate of growth of the different species of trees. The areas vary in size from 3 acres at Alice Holt, where there are only five plots, to 50 acres at Ceiriog, with more than fifty plots and groups.
