Usefulness and services of the tree :
Features and characters of the individual
If this hornbeam had been trimmed as hedge from a very young age, Rue du Buisson might have been called after this instead. But here we have an isolated tree, that forms a forest all by itself. Its silhouette fills the whole space between two 6-storey buildings, with its top brushing with their roofs. Its foliage is home to an array of life that animates the neighbourhood. If you closely observe its trunk, you will see something strange in its appearance: its bark has gradually covered the wrought iron railing. Smiling upon all who walk beneath it, this hornbeam is what gives the street its charme.
