Twin Oak Drive

Twin Oak Drive


The trees that form the drive are a hybrid of the English Oak (Quercus robur) and the Algerian Oak (Quercus canariensis). These oaks do not typically lose all their leaves in winter, despite being deciduous by nature. The oak trees are flanked by a mixture of horse chestnut, kowhai and olive trees. All of the original avenue plantings were designed by landscape architect Austin Strong to give the best effect of highlighting the hill from the road, and similarly framing the roads when viewed from One Tree Hill.
