What you can experience
Eternity trees are specially designated trees that have been marked and protected so that they can stand forever - even when they have gone out.
An eternity tree can be old or very large. Or it can also have a great biological value or have a very great historical, aesthetic or other social value.
East Forest (Østskoven)
The oak tree in the East Forest is from the period before the forest was planted. Although the tree is the oldest in the forest, it can grow even larger over the next 100 years.
Sanatorium Forest (Sanatorieskoven)
The eternity tree was planted at a time when the whole area was very poor in forests. The tree is from the first generation of trees that were planted.
The beech tree in Vognsbølparken was planted at a time when the town was a poor forest area and where the landscape was characterized by open plains.
The tree in Marbæk is from the earliest period in the history of the forest, which was characterized by planting with coniferous tree species.
