What’s new about forests and trees around Brussels? A new book of Geographical Arboretum Tervuren takes you for a journey through the trees of the world
A brand new publication “Geographical Arboretum Tervuren, A journey through the trees of the world” offers an extraordinary tour in an extraordinary forest.
Situated in the municipality of Tervuren in the outskirts of Brussels, the Geographic Arboretum sits like a crown on the head of the majestic Sonian Forest. Countless trees and shrubs from the North, the West and the East of North America, from Central and Mediterranean Europe, from the Middle and Far East of Asia are grouped here by region of origin in some hundred sections, covering a total of 120 ha.
The arboretum was founded in 1902 on a property of King Leopold II and is today the most attractive public domain of the patrimony bequeathed by the king to the Belgian nation in 1903.
