Usefulness and services of the tree :
Features and characters of the individual
This tree is part of a small grove of five wych elms.
Brussels city gardeners have lined them up at the foot of two social housing blocks. As their branches are spread out and they have a very dense foliage, they form a pretty sort of forest in the shade: the perfect place to meet in the summer. Residents sit on the little wall supporting the elm’s soil. The trees overhear their conversations. Children play around them in the afternoon. Elders meet up here at the end of the day, then young people are there at night listening to their music.
