As the daylight leaves the streets the branches of the street trees stand out in silhouette against the still bright winter sky.

 

 

Like any city, the streets of Paris are hemmed in by tall buildings and there’s rarely a view to the horizon.  Street trees, reaching for the sky, challenge the hard lines of the buildings and add layers of natural grace, whatever the season.  One hundred thousand trees line the streets and quays of the city.  However beautiful the buildings, Paris would be a bleak place without its trees.
