Usefulness and services of the tree :
Features and characters of the individual
This beech decorates the lawn of the beautifully neo-classical Parc Duden. It has grown quietly, a little on the sidelines. Its competitors for light – the trees of the neighbouring mature forest – are able to indulge in much more light. But there is no need to have its crown very high up in the sky though. It has taken advantage of the open space of the park to grow its crown, spread its branches as much as it wanted. Its huge oval crown invites walkers and film students (from INRACI) to sit down near it. Be careful not to crush the roots too much though, as they are very shallow under the surface of the ground.
