Amazingly Beautiful Trees From Around the World

These trees are some of the most beautiful natural sights in the world.

Wawona Tree

The Wawona Tree in the Manposa Grove of Big Trees, stands in the Yosemite Valley, California. The Wawona Tree is 227 feet tall and 90 feet in circumference. Six hundred giant sequoias have been growing in this grove for centuries and they are the largest and oldest trees in the world.

Dominican Palms

Giant palm trees grow right at the water’s edge on the coast of the Dominican Republic. The salt water and air doesn’t seem to make any difference to the way they grow.

The Tolkien Trees

This group of three trees lies at the East Gate of the Avebury Stone Circle in England. The entwined roots are supposed to be what inspired J R Tolkien to write ‘Lord of The Rings’. This group of trees is known as The Tolkien Trees.

Gigantic Baobab

The giant baobab tree is the centre of a Namibian village. The village which is across the river Kasane, Botawana, grew up around this huge tree. The shade it offers is very important to the village.

Mangrove Tree

Giant Caribbean mangrove tree which grows in the water. Mangrove is the name given to a whole family of trees which grow in saline water in the tropics and subtropics.

Monkey Puzzle

The monkey Puzzle tree is named because of its twisted branches and its cones which are shaped like a monkey’s tail. This one is in the Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh, Scotland.

    I have always loved trees. They are one of natures most beautiful works of art with no two trees the same.

    The Tolkien Trees are very interesting…I had no idea such trees existed. I have always heard of a Monkey Puzzle but never knew what they looked like. Your information is fascinating.

    Thank you for sharing.

    The Wawona tree is in the Mariposa Grove, not the Manposa Grove. It is located in Yosemite National Park, CA. Beautiful. All of the trees there are.

    The Sequoia’s of California are not the oldest trees, just the tallest. The oldest non-clonal tree/organism is Methuselah, a Bristlecone pine from the White Mountains in California almost 5,000 years old, and the single oldest tree is a Norway Pine whose root system is almost 10,000 years old, located in Sweden.
