A collections of living trees depicting life out of branches.
Trees have been around since the dawn of time. They are our eyes and ears to history. They have seen the being that created this earth and the inhabitants that walked it.
These are some of the most interesting trees I have found on my travels.
Tree of Christ
This tree is miraculously growing and resembling Christ on the Cross. The facial features are quite clear and the form of the body is astounding.
The Living Tree of Life and Nature
This tree is like visiting a zoological park containing hundreds of different species that will be preserved for hundreds of thousands of years.
Limpopo, Mozambique is known for the traditional sculpture and wood carvings that artists produce known as “family trees”. These trees are large depictions of various figures that tell a story.
Arbol Del Tule
This tree is more than two thousand years old, it’s about 40 m high, and the bottom of it, as shown on the picture above, is about 42 m wide. The Arbol Del Tule is located in Santa Maria the Tule. That is to the east of the City of Oaxaca, approximately 8 miles by Federal Highway 190.
This famous tree is located in the Mariposa Grove of Big Trees, a pleasurable drive of 36 miles from the hotels and camps in Yosemite Valley. The “Wawona” tree is 227 feet tall and 90 feet in circumference. In this grove, more than six hundred giant Sequoias have been growing here for centuries; sequoias are the largest and oldest trees.

“Lady Liberty” of Florida
This tree is currently the Florida Champion. It’s named after Florida Senator M.O. Overstreet, who donated the tree and surrounding land to Seminole County in 1951. In 1946, the American Forestry Association estimated the “Senator’s” age was 3,500 years old.
Incredibly, Lady Liberty has been around since Jesus walked the earth as man. “It was growing here when the Hittites sacked Old Babylon and ended the rule of the descendants of Hammurabi in that kingdom. That’s ancient! “
