Solitary trees


Solitary trees

Solitary trees on the Roularta site get maximum opportunities:

  • Solitary trees get a full crown, which is equivalent to an equally beautiful root structure, ideal for retaining water.

  • The trees were selected for their flowering period for the bees, butterflies and other winged creatures, but also for their leaf colour throughout the seasons.

  • These solitary trees will soon contrast with the forest and the Urban Forestry (mini-forest) that will be planted, all together over 1.5 ha of forest that represents a planting of 12,000 trees.

  • Lime trees (Tilia platyphyllos), very bee-friendly

  • Willows

  • Oak (Quercus robur)

  • Amber tree (Liquidambar styraciflua)

  • Japanese mulberry (Morus bombycis), early bloomer, already in March

  • Persian ironwood (Parrotia persica), from the witch hazel family, flowers already from January to March

  • Acacia (Robinia pseudoacacia), an exotic, but very bee-friendly with lots of nectar

  • Spiny wood (Betula utilis)

  • Walnut (Juglans regia)

  • Judas tree (Cercis siliquastrum), multi-stemmed shrub that flowers abundantly in spring

  • and other species
