Warminster Town Council: Delivering a brighter, greener future for all

Trees Trail success leads to 3rd Edition

25 July 2022

Warminster’s Lake Pleasure Grounds Tree Trail has been updated and reprinted.

The Tree Trail was written by local resident Harriet James. It was originally printed in 2019. This third edition is in response to its continued popularity.

Chair of Warminster Town Council’s Parks and Estates Committee, Councillor Stacie Allensby said, “I am delighted that the tree trail has proved such a success. It is both fun to do and educational.”

The trail is just over 1km long and is on level, surfaced paths. There are 17 points of interest along the way.

Amongst the snippets of information in the trail are little gems that will get you thinking.  

You might think you don’t know a lot about trees but can at least tell what an Oak tree is, but did you know there are at least 40 different species of oak tree? Do you know what an Oak apple is?

Dawn Redwood Trees come from central China and were only identified and named in the 1940’s. Did you know that Warminster has three Dawn Redwoods right by the Lake? Worldwide, they are a rare and endangered tree.

Councillor Bill Parks, Vice Chairman of the Parks and Estates Committee added: “People can pick up a copy of the tree trail in the Pavilion Café in the Park or at Warminster Civic Centre, Alternately, it can be downloaded from the Town Council’s Website.”
