Features and characters of the individual
It’s quite rare to come across a wild crab apple tree in Brussels. This species is usually found in hedgerows, or on the edge of the woods. This one grows on a piece of land that escaped urbanisation. It adds character to the Avenue Franz Guillaume wasteland. Very visible in the landscape, this countryside survivor reminds us of the once-rural past of this residential area. Not so long ago, this area was wilder, people ate the apples, and enjoyed the blooming flowers.
