Centenarian Trees of Durban

Durban Botanical Gardens

The BotSoc KZN Coastal Branch would like to invite you to a walk led by Hugh Glen on Centenarian Trees of Durban Botanical Gardens. The walk will take place on Saturday 17th March at 9h00.

"What did the gardens look like 100 years ago? Durban Botanical Gardens is the oldest of its kind in Africa and was founded in 1849. Many of the trees in the gardens are stately Victorians, between 120 and 150 years old. This walk aims to introduce participants to some of your guide's favourites, introduces a few relatively young 'uns and one or two planted to commemorate special events over the last century or so. We will look at one of the last survivors of the forest that clothed the Berea (a greybeard of some 170 summers) and the rarest tree you'll ever see".

Entrance is R50 with proceeds going towards Melissa Glen's medical expenses. Please book via email: [email protected]. Tel: 031 201 5111. Cell: 071 869 3693.
