Jesus Green is one of the more pleasant open areas in the city because it has this particularly beautiful row of London Plane trees (Platanus x acerifolia, Platanus x hispanica), which were planted around 1913.

It all looked rather different around a year later when some snow had fallen.

Even now the local government plants many trees around Cambridge but a fair portion of them are snapped in half by vandals.
