Trees in Hard Landscapes, A Guide for Delivery, published by the Trees and Design Action Group in September 2014, defines Parallax as: ‘…the apparent displacement of an observed object due to a change in the position of the observer. Tall features located very near to the carriageway and viewed from a travelling car will seem to “move” more quickly than other objects in the far background, reinforcing the driver’s impression of his or her own speed.’
