The presence of Monumental and Singular Trees in the city of Valencia, it reflects the spirit of people, many anonymous, who opted to preserve and protect one of the longest living beings on the planet, and whose ability to grow throughout their lives allows us today to surprise ourselves with their dimensions or by characteristics that have nothing to do with measurements but with their rarities, their peculiar shape, the historical facts associated with them or because they are unique species.

All of them silently contribute to the fight against climate change. They are our allies and will play an important role inside cities.

All of them make our lives more pleasant. They are the living witnesses of our history, the travelers of time and space, they are the heirs of the model of sustainable city that we build now.
