Trees of London |
The swamp cypress in Aldermanbury square is quite a striking sight when one first encounters it, such an unusual tree to be seen in an urban location. It is testament to the versatility and durability of these large conifers that it can survive in London. However, the reason there are not many of them in London, and why those that there are are striking is because they don't really fit in. Unlike glorious deciduous trees, like the London plane which vary with the seasons, these conifers offer very little after the first glance.
