Frank Sydenham Planting Register (1947-c1967). Arborist Frank Sydenham graduated from Massey Agricultural College in 1933 with a Masters degree. He served during World War II. When he died he left money to Tauranga to create the botanic gardens. Sydenham Botanic Park is located at 6 Millers Road, Brookfield. The 3 hectare property was left by the late Frank Sydenham for the purpose of being developed into a botanic park. This metal file records the plantings he did in the Tauranga area.
