Features and characters of the individual
This scarlet oak grows slowly but surely. It is surrounded by two benches that highlight it, as if in brackets, and by the people of the neighbourhood who gladly gather under its spread foliage. Its pyramidal silhouette sculpts and animates the square. Its grey trunk dialogues with the paving stones. With its yellow-brown branches, golden flowers in summer, bright green leaves in spring, bright red in autumn and brown in winter, it brightens up the space. Its leaf is similar to that of the American red oak with sharp lobes. But it is much more incised (7 lobes).
It is the individual that SAS Parenthèse has chosen in the heart of the Marolles:
"Place de l'Epée, a stone's throw from our house, is one of the trees we regularly see, a place for a short break when it is quiet. In the course of our activities, through various expression workshops with young people, we gradually discover the life of trees, nature and their place in our lives. "
