Avenue of lime trees by the hospital

The planting of streets with rows of trees has a long tradition.




Even the Romans planted their military roads with rows of trees to provide shade for the legionnaires and to improve orientation. At the beginning of the 19th century, paved roads based on the French model were laid out to improve the mostly poor road conditions of the time. These were planted with rows of trees on both sides to delimit and mark the roads. The trees made travel more pleasant: they provided protection from the sun and reduced the annoying formation of dust. Frequently, avenues were also created simply for their representative character.

How and when did the green avenues come into being?
In Brilon, the first streets were extended and planted with trees by the Hessian government (1802-1816). Also field paths were often lined with trees, often with fruit trees. The linden avenue at the hospital was probably planted in the course of the emerging tourism around 1920 to beautify the landscape.
