PicPost: 'One of the most important trees in the world..'

‘Trees articulate Oxford’s distinctive skyline of spires and domes and as such provide a seasonally changing foreground and frame to the landscape setting. From certain western viewpoints, the sylvan ridgescape of Headington provides a green backdrop to the city. In lower lying land, ribbon belts of trees delineate the two rivers, associated streams, canals and meadows within the boundaries of the city.

Trees enhance and soften the scene by acting as a foil to architecture and this impact can be due to very small numbers or indeed individual specimens. For instance, the Sycamore sandwiched between All Souls and Queen’s College punctuates the long gentle curve of the High Street. Apart from probably being one of the most photographed trees in England, the town planner Thomas Sharp described the tree ‘…as one of the most important in the world: without it, the scene would suffer greatly’.
