About the Tree Trail
The Ashford Tree Trail will be a visual spectacle growing across Ashford town, created by the local community and artists from Animate Arts Company. Collaboratively they will make an installation of decorated trees that will form a trail across the town centre of Ashford for the Jubilee weekend and throughout June 2022.
The Ashford Tree Trail will be an orchard of 20 curated trees ‘planted’ over various secure locations across the town, from local parks to shopping centres, and all in a public space for audiences to visit and enjoy. There will be 20 main trees; 1 x cardboard Jubilee ‘Blossom’ Tree, 10 x large wooden trees, located in the town centre, and a further 9 x real trees decorated both in the Civic Park and other town centre locations. Animate artists will work with 5 x schools/community groups and at 2 x general public events to design and make ornaments for these 20 main trees.
