New white paper focuses on managing allées
Historic New England's guidelines for managing allées (PDF) are newly available online. An allée is a path or driveway lined with trees or shrubs that create a formal design. Over time, the individual trees in an allée decline. As they are removed, it becomes challenging to preserve the overall intent and form of the allée. Historic New England has several allées at sites such as Barrett House and Cogswell's Grant, and our study of allée management has informed the new guidelines.
Visit the white paper section to learn more about tree care and other topics. We are constantly reviewing, refining, and updating our approach, both through preservation projects and documentation available online.
