They're trees Jim - but not as we know them!
They're trees Jim - but not as we know them!
This is the eastern end of Raddington Road, just where it crosses Portobello Road. The trees are London plane Plantanus x acerifolia, a hybrid with characteristic piebald bark. This natural bark-shedding feature makes the trees pollution tolerant because absorbed, airborne pollutants are shed with the old bark. Here they have been branch pollarded and, in the spring, will produce new growth from the knobbly ends.
