Some of the most beautiful trees in the world


There are many reasons to love the trees: they help produce the oxygen that we breathe, they provide shelter from the sun on a hot day; they’re the perfect home for many different kinds of animal. Here’s one more reason: some of them look absolute unique amazing.

Actually some of them aren’t technically trees (the wisteria is a vine; the rhododendron is a bush, and the baobab is actually related to grass plants). But we couldn’t leave them out of this list — they’re just so wonderful to look at.
