  Arboretum history
Trees must, in most cases, be placed near the road, so as to form foregrounds to the interior of the park; and between the road and the boundary, they will be required for the purpose of disguising that boundary, or forming foregrounds to the scenery beyond.
In the interior of the park there should be few or no closely planted masses; for the effect of these is to diminish the apparent space, and to curtain the appearance of extent from every point of view.
The outcome of the entrance charges was that the upkeep of the park was paid for by those who could afford it, while those who had neither the money or the time to visit the park during their long working hours, were given free access on their days off work.
