Extreme wind damages tree 

The beautiful Hesperocyparis macrocarpa (Monterey Cypress) at Melbourne Gardens has suffered extensive damage as a result of recent high winds. This is a much loved tree, by both the Gardens' visitors and staff alike, and our expert arborists are currently working to assess its safety and wellbeing.  

While inspection works are being undertaken, we have closed several paths nearby as a safety precaution. Please detour the area either via the Grey Garden, the Southern China Collection, or by the Rose Pavilion during this time.

Thank you for your understanding, we hope to reopen these paths soon.
