On a four-hectare site in Kempen, on the Lower Rhine in Germany, seventy residential units have been constructed as part of a regional development. The area is literally crossed by a green corridor with a walking and cycling route. The city of Kempen chose to plant multi-stem Prunus sargentii ‘Rancho’ along the length of the whole corridor. The choice for this species was made based on its slim, vertical growth, the beautiful bright pink blossom in the spring and the spectacular red autumn colour. The multi-stem trees create avenue planting with a unique feel.
