The Multisecular Sweet Chestnut of Audran Square
Species: Sweet Chestnut (Castanea sativa L.)
Age: 330 years old
Region: La Celle Saint-Cloud (Yvelines) in Île de France Region, France
The meadow tree turned urban
Remembrance of vast woods and pastures, the most famous Chestnut Tree of the city of La Celle Saint-Cloud is not very high, because its branches used to be cut to make vineyard stakes. But over three centuries, it has spread its amazing wide silhouette and twisted its trunk's bark, making it a real sculpture today. He was a lonely tree in the middle of his meadow, but the city has grown all around! The country tree has become a very popular urban tree, today the central piece of a square, redeveloped especially to showcase this little treasure.
