Usefulness and services of the tree :
Features and characters of the individual
Walnuts trees don’t grow along the streets of Brussels. And with good reason! Their particularly tasty nuts are not the preferred choice of motorists. This magnificent walnut tree doesn’t have a lots of admirers. On the contrary, for motorists this tree does everything it can to dirty their cars. But some people from the area still maintain the nostalgia of when this tree was in the countryside. They ask themselves, who was it that had the bright idea to put parking spaces… under a walnut tree! This tree has seen apartment blocks pop up like mushrooms in the surrounding fields. And the tarmac over the soil near its roots is taking over. There’s no need to point fingers at this tree, it has been through enough already as it is. There is a small meadow just behind the tree, reminding it of more rural times. And whether people like it or not, this tree still has a central space within the landscape.
