Fellings and new plantings in the park of Villa Hügel

24 October 2019


Villa Hügel is surrounded by a 28-hectare park, which the Krupp Foundation preserves for future generations and opens daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for interested visitors. Many different tree species and plants, such as rhododendrons, beeches, lime trees or horse chestnuts, make up the face of the park. It is a constant challenge for the foundation to ensure the preservation of the plants in view of the ever-increasing influence of environmental factors. In the last two years in particular, the park and its vegetation have been severely affected by drought, storms and pests, so that 57 trees have had to be felled between 2018 and today. To this end, the Foundation planted 68 new trees during this period in the interests of conservation.
