London Plane trees, Du Cane Road

Du Cane Road is lined on both sides with London Plane trees. They are tall and not deformed by pollarding like many others. These are three of the ones along the south side of the street opposite Wormwood Scrubs. In the pictures above you can see the self-cleaning action of the trees, which enables to thrive in polluted atmospheres such as London's by continually shedding and renewing their bark.
