Elm Avenue

A splendid avenue of 70 English elms was planted in 1928 to frame the vista from the new Waite Institute building to the sea. The avenue marks the passing seasons with a flush of bright green leaves in spring and yellow autumn colour. The Elm Avenue, a number of special collections, and the Arboretum as a whole are listed on the National Estate, State Heritage and National Trust Register of Significant Trees.
