Usefulness and services of the tree :
Features and characters of the individual
It’s the enormous base of this tree that grabs your attention as you pass by. Then you’ll notice its intriguing, red-brown bark, which is fibrous, thick and soft. The thick bark protects the tree from fires. The sequoia in Parc Tournay-Solvay is often put to the test by dogs scratching and clawing at its bark, and from being knocked by people passing by. If you walk past yourself, rather than taking any frustrations out on this giant, lean back comfortably against its trunk, look up and let yourself be carried away by its dizzying height. This tree can really open up your imagination.
