Which trees are which in the Saltmarsh Garden?

Class 3 from Riverside Primary Academy worked with Clare Ross, Gateshead Council project officer, and Northern Architecture, to identify trees in Dunston’s Saltmarsh Gardens. Pupils took surface rubbings from the trunks of  trees, which were planted in 1990 as part of Gateshead Garden Festival. We collected leaves that had fallen from the trees and took them back to the classroom for a closer look.
