Usefulness and services of the tree :
Features and characters of the individual
Here is a set of exotic trees that were planted at the beginning of the 20th century, probably at the time that the avenue and Bois de la Cambre were developed. At that time, this and other species were imported to enrich the arboretum collection (botanical collection of trees). Different generations of trees now rub shoulders here, as weaker trees were slowly replaced to maintain the landscape effect of this beautiful group of trees. The crowns of mature monkey puzzle trees sit very high up. If you pass by, you will be able to see the bare trunks of the oldest trees and also the branches and needles of the youngest ones that are still lower down.
