Trees of London |
Where one sees these trees, it is difficult not to be impressed by them, even if they are seen in the winter, bare of foliage. When they are mature, they have thick trunks from which strong branches spring, producing a round crown.
The nuts are like wingnuts, which are used by motor mechanics and the like. It can be assumed that the metal ones where named after the tree.
The nuts hang down in trains and make the tree relatively easy to recognize in the autumn.
The nuts trail down from the wingnut tree.
