My name is Gerd Seehawer. I have been involved in the practical and theoretical
aspects of dendrology since about 1980. My interest in dendrology was aroused by
visits to the nearby Botanical Gardens.
Stays abroad in Southern and Western Europe, North Africa, especially on the
Canary Islands and the British Isles, increased my enthusiasm for dendrology.
The kingdom of endemic species and the subtropical flora in the Canaries, as well
as the English, Scottish and Irish garden variety made me enthusiastic about
The mild, maritime-marked regions of Western Europe, with their unexpected
botanical possibilities, interest me particularly.
At the same time my garden became the location of dendrological experiments
and thus a small, remarkable arboretum.
A picture has considerably more meaning than long scientific descriptions and
I provide contacts, exchanges and suggestions for anyone interested in botany.
