One of London's Grandest Trees
I love the Dutch method of using espaliers for urban trees - a frame to tie the young tree branches so that they grow into a flat plan. I didn't examine this tree growing on the Victoria Embankment closely but it may have been trained this way since the method is also space saving - and beautiful.
