I start to suspect we're using different definitions of "road."  Or
definitions of "tree-lined."  Or different definitions of "tree."

I'd almost think you were talking of the landscaping feature of private
gardens known as an avenue (the word has been much debased in
English, where it used to correspond to the French allée) but this
appears to have been about roads in general, not ornamental ways.

And this is the case for most of the roads around here, but the trees are
of the hedge.  On private ground.  You don't get to walk around the trunks
because of the hedge (or fence) between the trunks.  See, for example,
https://goo.gl/maps/QKsezC9bqsea1twy9 and keep going in that direction.
They're not ornamental or even for shade, they're windbreaks (or the
farmers have been too lazy to trim their hedges for many decades).
