Chêne

The limited area of the garden does not allow for the full growth of large trees. Nevertheless, it is these large trees that ones remarks upon when entering the gate for the first time. For example:

Five Platanus hispanica (Spanish Plane-trees) aged about 280 years old, form an alley in front of the Winter garden. Several Quercus (Oaks), that are more than 300 years old, used to border the old Roman road. Also, Metasequoia glyptostroboides a "living fossil" can be seen. (Comparable to the Coelacanth fish, this conifer with deciduous leaves was first discovered in a fossil form.)
