Avenue planting design

Planting design types

The planting of ceremonial avenues began in the ancient world and has fallen from popularity only in unsettled times (eg Europe's dark ages) when there has been a lack of central authority. Archaeological remains of avenue planting have been found in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia and in Persia there are carvings of avenue trees at Persepolis.
