Long Description:
[FR]

"Depuis 2001, l'arboretum de la Citadelle est l'objet d'une importante opération de restauration végétale. Plusieurs arbres devenus dangereux ont été abattus, alors que des essences rares ont été plantées. C'est ainsi que l'arboretum "nouvelle mouture" a pu être inauguré en fin 2003. La ville a voulu renforcer le rôle didactique de cet outil. A ce effet, un étiquetage adapté et spécifique a été mis en place sur plus de 125 spécimens représentatifs.

Situé à coté de la Maison des Mariages, ce jeune géant séquoia a été planté lors de la construction de ce bâtiment au XIXe siècle."

" Since 2001, the arboretum of the Citadelle has undergone a major plant restoration operation, and several trees that have become dangerous have been cut down, while rare species have been planted.
Thus, the new arboretum was inaugurated at the end of 2003. The city wanted to reinforce the didactic role of this tool. To this end, adapted and specific labeling has been put in place on more than 125 representative specimens.

Located next to the House of Weddings, this young sequoia giant was planted during the construction of this building in the nineteenth century."
