Usefulness and services of the tree :
Features and characters of the individual
This tree is part of two long straight rows of poplars that keep watch over the meadow and Bempt Park. Together, facing the industrial and commercial expansion in the area, they rise like a defence wall protecting one of the rare islets of greenery and biodiversity at the bottom of the Forest district. One of the last remaining balls of mistletoe in town appears to be watching from the crown. These poplars overlook the meadow, which has been partly converted into sports fields, a water feature, a miniature train and a shaded park on the other side.
