Outdoor greenspaces, such as parks and various lands which serve as arboreta (e.g. 大学校园, 墓地, golf courses) can provide opportunities for outdoor recreational activities as well as facilitate public education and tourism.
组件的墓地 occupies approximately 40 acres, 因此, represents one of the largest publicly–accessible greenspaces within the City of Portsmouth. The cemetery is also known to be home to several trees of significance, such as national record (size) American Holly, 和柿子, 等.
组件的墓地 is home to over 550 trees and shrubs, representing a diversity of approximately 75 species. The following maps can be opened in browser or mobile app to explore the diversity of trees at 组件的墓地 and learn about some of particular interest.
If you know of any trees with stories to tell (e.g. 为纪念某一事件而种植的, by or in memorial of a famous individual, war, 或一组), please contact the project directors below and share your information!
