The two greatest are both adorned with spiky fruit; a london plane tree with a trunk like a giant's thigh, and a sweet chestnut tree that might prove of interest to foragers. I went to visit them today on my afternoon walk on a wet day where after the weekend I've had, I didn't really have a whole lot of energy for more vigorous exercise.
These trees don't exercise as much as I do, but their strength must be incredible. If I stand there motionless all my life, 1) I'd get very bored and 2) I'd get very very fat. These trees grow tall and strong, sprout leaves, and produce a ton of fruit every year.
The only thing I do better than trees is run. And write.
