The Oldest Tree in Paris
Visit the Square René Viviani to see the oldest tree in Paris. Planted in 1601, the locust tree now relies on concrete beams for support, and you'll find a plaque at the base of the tree denoting its importance. During World War I, some of the upper branches of the tree were lost, but it still blooms every year. Jean Robin, a botanist, is believed to be the person who planted it.
