Ever taken a walk around the FAO grounds and noticed the numbers on the trees? One of our library patrons asked about them a few days ago. The area is called the FAO Tree Park, and FAO InTouch featured an article about it on May 6, 2009.
Staff members of the Forestry Division created a leaflet that describes and maps the various species of trees, noting the corresponding number noted at each tree. The leaflets are available in the Forestry Information Centre and at the entrance to Building A.
Here is tree #137.
