This white willow has had plenty of room to grow freely. It has revealed an immense crown, with an impressive width. It is carried by four large trunks: two main trunks that have divided into three. All the willow coppices of this size in Brussels can be counted on one hand. Thus, it is part of the living heritage within the region. Its foliage is bright. The leaves, which are dark green on top and blue green underneath, are covered with silky, silvery hairs that capture the sun’s rays. This creates an aura around this tree.
