Tree species

Green light for tree and shrub

Everyone who loves parks and gardens knows that the choice of plants is decisive for the success of the planting project. In keeping with the concept of the Luthergarten, it is the intent to use tree species from all the continents, so that the ecumenical vision of the project is highlighted.
