Features and characters of the individual

Obviously it is a plane tree, very large, it has probably been cut very little. We chose it because it is the closest to our asbl. Its branches cover our roof and we can see it from our offices. He protects us, and also threatens us because we fear that his branches will fall on our roof on windy days! But it is part of a group of majestic trees, it has its place in the forest that borders our association and we like to admire it and walk at its feet.
