Irishtown Nature Park

This patch of red pines (on the Blue Trail of the park) is the result of a Boy Scout project dating back to the 1940s. With the help of a local farmer, they planted the red pines as part of a forestry project to manage the area. Today, the tallest trees seen in this 360-degree image are about 80 feet (24.4 m) tall! A number of trees were damaged or killed back in 2000, during an ice storm. Park authorities are considering felling some of the dead trees as they may eventually pose a threat to hikers.

Irishtown Nature Park, in Moncton, NB, is one of the largest urban parks in Canada.

Parc naturel d'Irishtown

Ce groupe de pins rouges (sur le sentier bleu du parc) est le résultat du travail d'un groupe de scouts dans les années 40. Avec l'aide d'un fermier de la région, ils ont planté ces arbres dans le cadre d'un projet de gestion forestière. Aujourd'hui, les plus hauts arbres qu'on voit dans cette image à 360 degrés sont d'une hauteur de 80 pieds (24.4 mètres). Une tempête de verglas, en 2000, a endommagé ou tué plusieurs arbres. Les responsables du parc, envisagent d'abattre certains arbres morts qui pourraient poser un danger pour les randonneurs.

Le Parc naturel d'Irishtown, situé à Moncton NB, est l'un des plus grands parcs en zone urbaine au Canada.
