Find the monkey puzzle tree carvings

After the devastating loss of our monkey puzzle tree in the severe weather of spring 2018, artist Allen Stichler was commissioned to create wood carvings from the tree to display in the Pleasure Garden. Stroll through the tree and flower lined paths of the gardens, and look out for the beautiful carvings with different quotes.

The tree was thought to be one of the oldest in England. Monkey puzzle trees are native to Argentina and Chile and this one, along with several others, was planted at Sewerby Hall and Gardens in 1868 - forming one of the most successful plantations of such trees in the north of the UK. It is believed that it was grown, on site, by Yarburgh Lloyd-Greame, from seeds he brought back from his trip to South America in the early 1860s. A new monkey puzzle tree has now been planted.
