Usefulness and services of the tree :
Features and characters of the individual
Residents of the Cité Modèle in Laeken planted a series of trees in the ‘50s and ‘60s. Nowadays this tree is on friendly terms with the buildings, whilst other neighbouring trees vie to surpass the rooftops. Its magnificent crown, adorned with supple branches that sway in the slightest breeze, contrasts with the geometric lines of the city buildings and its gardens. This golden weeping willow is visible amongst the urban landscape. Especially in the spring when it brings an animated, golden touch to the urban landscape, this tree is far from being sad (even if it is “weeping”).
