Pair of Plane Trees, Platanus orientalis (Trees no. 256 & 257) Opposite the Law Library
Of note: all plane trees (used frequently in cities) shed their bark every 2/3 years – good for getting rid of certain amounts of pollution. The seed heads are globular in appearance.
Of interest: this pair of trees are very unusual looking because of their reaction to a infection in the main trunk during the infancy of the tree. The nodules created during this infection continue to fall off regularly.
