    Originally primarily useful for building in nature, the arboretum is becoming an important experimental field in the stormy and hot-dry times of climate change. You can see the skeletons of dead spruces, which cannot survive this climate change, in the immediate vicinity of the exotic trees. The biodiversity of the arboretum can help with the current problems to discover more resistant tree species.

    "... The Arboretum Burgholz in the Landesbetrieb Wald und Holz NRW is with its area of around 250 hectares and around 100 different deciduous and conifer species from almost all continents of the world the largest cultivation area with foreign tree species in Germany.
    At the beginning of the 1970s, the State Forest Administration's experimental cultivation area for foreign conifers was put into the foreground from the end of the 1990s on the aspect of the forestry educational garden and the forest areas of the foreign tree species have been referred to as "arboretum" (arbor, lat. = Tree) since 1999. Today, Burgholz once again has a leading role in the association of forest trial areas in North Rhine-Westphalia. The oldest plantings are around 55 years old today.
    Three short circular hiking trails - Trees of the World - convey impressions of individual tree species from North America, Asia and Europe.
    A longer hiking trail - Forests of the World - gives you impressions of closed forest stands as exotic landscapes, so to speak. The individual tree species are presented along the hiking trails by means of a graphic representation of the habitus and a distribution map. ... "

    The different tree species that are not (yet) indigenous here give a completely different forest feeling. Nice + interesting! Even on the weekend it wasn't too crowded in the morning, we had long sections all to ourselves.
