Natura Mirabilis – Panel No. 8

This photo (80 x 120 cm) is located rue Sainte Anne.

Each of the Atlas cedars in the chateau park, planted at the end of the 19th century, covers approximately 500 m2 and measures 30 metres high. Some branches, like this one, start horizontally very close to the trunk, extending over a dozen metres. Despite its imposing size, the Atlas cedar is on the list of endangered species of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

The Atlas cedars in the chateau park were planted at the end of the 19th century. This branch that successive gardeners have allowed to grow almost at ground level releases a power that defies the laws of gravity.
