This might look like any other tree-lined street, but it’s not!
These are no ordinary trees. And this is no ordinary street lining. I took this snap somewhere between Sénas and Salone-de-Provence.
These are plane trees planted carefully on both sides of the street, and in fact this street lining continues for well over 20 kilometers! According to what I’ve read, Napoleon ordered the planting of zillions of these trees along the roadsides in France, to give shade to the army troops when they marched from town to town.
