Features and characters of the individual
This tree is part of a small grove of chestnut trees that borders the immense sand pit halfway up Parc de Forest. In springtime, (May-June) it really stands out. While most of its neighbours are turning red, it is adorned with large white flowers spotted with pink and yellow. Otherwise, it fits in with the others for the rest of the year, with its reddish brown bark that flakes in small plates.
