Spectacular Trees From Around the World

Trees are some of the most beautiful things created by God. They provide food, water, shade, fresh air and other things.

I cannot imagine what life would be without trees. Here’s a list of some of the most wonderful trees from the six continents.

  1. Tree of Life – Bahrain

    The Tree of Life is a 400-year old mesquite tree in Bahrain which is considered a natural wonder. This unique tree stands alone in the desert about 1.2 miles (two kilometers) from the Jebel Dukhan. The source of water for this tree still remains a mystery, because it stands in a place completely without water supply. Mesquites yield yellowish gums used in making mucilage, candies and dyes.

  2. Cedars of God – Lebanon

    The Cedars of God are among the last survivors of the immense forests of the Cedars of Lebanon that thrived across Mount Lebanon in ancient times. Their timber was exploited by the Assyrians, Babylonians and Persians as well as the Phoenicians. The wood was especially prized by Egyptians for shipbuilding; Solomon used them in the construction of the First Temple in Jerusalem and the Ottoman Empire also used the cedars to build its railroad system.

    The Cedars of God is a small forest of about 400 Lebanon Cedar trees at about 2,300 meters above sea level in the mountains of northern Lebanon. The Cedars of Lebanon are mentioned in the Bible over 70 times and used as symbols of the Messiah, and they were prized by historical figures such as Herod, Alexander, and Caesar. They also have a mention in the Epic of Gilgamesh.

  3. World’s Hardiest Conifer – Chile

    Araucaria araucana (Pehuén or Monkey-puzzle) is the hardiest species in the conifer genus Araucaria. It is native to central Chile and Argentina, and is an evergreen tree growing to 40 m tall and 2 m trunk diameter. Because of this species’ great age it is sometimes described as a living fossil. Araucaria araucana is the national tree of Chile.

  4. Curtain Fig Tree – Australia

    Curtain Fig Tree a massive tree near Cairns, Australia is one of the largest trees in North Queensland. The vine dangles 15 meters to the ground to create a curtain-like effect and one of the best known attractions on the Atherton Tableland. The Curtain Fig Tree is from the strangler fig species Ficus virens. Normally these parasitic figs germinate on top of another tree and try to make roots into the ground. Once this important step is done, the fig will grow vigorously, finally kill the hosting tree and then grow on independently. In this case the hosting tree tilted towards the next one, the fig also grows around that one. Its curtain of aerial roots drop 15 meters (49 feet) to the ground.

  5. Cathedral Fig Tree – Australia

    The Cathedral Fig Tree, like the Curtain Fig Tree, is a gigantic 500 year old strangler tree.

  6. Ginkgo Tree – Japan

    This ginkgo tree is located in Toyama, Japan. It is said to be 1,400 years old and is a female ginkgo. Ginkgo is deciduous tree having fan-shaped leaves and fleshy yellow seeds; exists almost exclusively in cultivation especially as an ornamental street tree and medicinal tree.

  7. Banyan Tree – Philippines

    Banyan tree or locally called Balete tree in the Philippines has always been associated with supernatural and believed by many to be a dwelling place of supernatural beings like the white lady, tikbalang and many others. In India it is a sacred tree and their national tree. A single banyan tree may cover an area nearly 1,500 ft. (460 m) in circumference and have more than 3,000 trunk-like roots.

  8. Emancipation Oak – U.S.A.

    Emancipation Oak is a historic tree located on the campus of Hampton University in what is now the City of Hampton, Virginia The large sprawling oak is 98 feet (30 m) in diameter, with branches which extend upward as well as laterally, as if offering refuge. It is designated as one of the 10 Great Trees of the World by the National Geographic Society and is part of the National Historic Landmark District of Hampton University. The tree is a Live Oak (Quercus virgiana).

  9. Bottle Tree -Australia

    This tree is extremely drought tolerant and can thrive with little to no water. They are cultivated in other warm regions as ornamentals. The name refers to the peculiar shape of the tree trunk. The Aborigines ate the young roots and seeds either raw or roasted. Bottle trees store water inside the swollen trunk, up to 120,000 liters (32,000 US gallons), to endure the harsh drought conditions particular to each region.

  10. Major Oak of Sherwood Forest – England

    This giant tree, with a waistline of 35 ft, a height of 52 feet and weighing an estimated 23 tons, has been here for about 800-1000 years. Legend has it that once upon a time Robin Hood hid from his enemies inside the hollow of the Major Oak

  11. Tane Mahuta – New Zealand

    Tane Mahuta, a giant Kauri in the Waipoua Forest of Northland Region, New Zealand. The tree’s Maori name means “Lord of the Forest” and is the name of a god in the Maori pantheon. Tāne Mahuta is the most massive kauri known to stand today. It is 51 meters (169 feet) in height, and has a circumference of 13.8 meters (45 feet). There is no proof of the tree’s age, but it is estimated to be between 1250 and 2500 years old. The trunk girth is 13.77 m, the trunk height is 17.68 m, the total height is 51.2 m and the trunk volume is 244.5 m3. It is the most famous tree in New Zealand and the oldest.

  12. Te Matua Ngahere – New Zealand

    Te Matura Nagger is a giant Kauri in Waipahu Forest of Northland Region, New Zealand.The tree’s Maori name means “Father of the Forest”. Although not as massive or tall as its neighbor Tame Mahuta, Te Matura Ngahere is much stouter, with a girth just over 16 meters (52.5 feet). There is no proof of the tree’s age, but it is estimated to be about 2000 years old. The tree is a remnant of the ancient rain forest that once grew on the North Auckland Peninsula.

  13. The Largest of the Oldest – Patriarch Grove, U.S.A.

    Bristlecone Pine trees live longer than 4,000 years. This is not the oldest, but the largest Bristlecone pine tree in the world located in White Mountains, California. The ancient trees have survived more than 40 centuries, exceeding the age of the oldest Giant Sequoia by 1,500 years. For trees that old, one would expect giants, but Bristlecone pines look more like weathered dwarfs than like old giants. They add no more than an inch per century to their girth. The harsh climate above 10,000 ft elevation and very poor soil conditions don’t let things grow too big. As a matter of fact, Bristlecone pines are the only trees to have adapted to these conditions. That gives them a competitive edge allowing for a long and undisturbed life.

  14. Baobab Tree – South Africa

    The Sunland “Big Baobab” in Limpopo Province, South Africa is famous internationally for being the largest of its species in the world. Africa is symbolized by these magnificent trees. The Sunland Big Baobab is carbon dated to be around 6,000 years old. When baobabs become a thousand years old, they begin to hollow inside. The Big Baobab has resulted in wonderful caverns and caves, where the world famous Baobab Tree Bar and Wine Cellar now amaze visitors. The tree bar can accommodate more than 60 people.

Hope you enjoyed this brief sightseeing of some of the most spectacular trees from the six continents.

    Great article. Everywhere in this world every tree has a story about itself.
    The one most unbelievable thing I came across while being Northern Greece in a village re-named (former name from the Macedonians – Rulia) Kotas, by the Greeks.
    My mother was born there and when we went for a holiday there it’s so quiet!!!
    You can’t hear any cars or anything like that, rather birds inside this enclosed
    tree forest which looks impossible to enter. The people in the village named this little forest on an island of soil, “Gods Forest”. Why? Because once a man went to cut wood, they told him not to go there because it was Gods Forest. He didn’t listen, so he went and chopped wood came out and went home with the wood.
    Twenty-four hours later he died from a cause unknown to doctors. Other people had gone, mainly the men to chop wood, same thing happened to them. This is all true, the people that live there told me so. Next time, if I go I want to just check it out, but I won’t touch anything because when I was there I was too young and it was a bit creepy.

    Trees symbolize, among other things, magnanimity, strength, tolerance, self-sufficiency, and selflessness. Just one look at these trees tells you why.

    “… the Rose Tree now covers an area of over 8,000 square feet, and holds the title of the world’s largest rose tree in the Guiness Book Of World Records.”

    Tombstone, Arizona Attractions
    http://www.legendsofamerica.com/AZ-Tombstone3.html

    The Rose Tree Inn, one of the first adobe buildings constructed in Tombstone, was built by A.C. and Alice Robertson in 1880 for the use of offices and a boarding house for the Vizina Mining Company. In 1885, a newly married couple from Scotland, Henry and Mary Gee, lived in the boarding house. While Henry, a mining engineer was away at work, Mary spent her time mostly being homesick for her native Scotland. However, she did make one friend, the caretaker at the Rose Tree Inn, one Amelia Adamson.

    When Henry and Mary built a permanent home, Mary’s family sent her a box of plant cuttings from her native home, including a white Lady Banksias Rose. After planting several in her yard, she gave a cutting of the rose to her friend Amelia at the Rose Tree Inn. Together, they planted the cutting on the patio and despite the desert heat, it began to thrive.

    When the Vizina Mine shut down, the building, with its rose bush in the back, became a hotel and in 1930, Ethel Macia, the daughter of original builders, A.C. and Alice Robertson took over the inn. By this time, the rose bush, so out of place in the Arizona desert, had grown to a “rose tree,” and was soon hailed as “The World’s Largest Rose” by an entertaining Robert Ripley.

    Today, the building, still owned by the Macia family, serves as a small museum. In back, the Rose Tree now covers an area of over 8,000 square feet, and holds the title of the world’s largest rose tree in the Guiness Book Of World Records.

    Great article. You should check the Jail Boab tree near Derby in Western Australia. You can still climb inside it, I wouldn’t want to be locked in there when it is 40c and hotter as it gets around summer. http://picasaweb.google.com/ronssmith00/KimberlyJune2007/photo#5090367207217091090


  34. Harry Barracuda Says...

    On June 12, 2008 at 8:44 am

    The tree of life is a mess. It’s surrounded by rubbish, and the Bahrainis, having no concept of history or respect for it, carve their names into it, break branches off and generally vandalise it without a thought.

    Truly a shame.

    On June 12, 2008 at 5:07 pm

    nice collection, you should add a side note to the banyon in the phillipines,just went to maui and saw a beautiful one in the town center of lahaina.
    on another note, the two oldest trees known, dead or alive, are prometheus and methusela in nevada. the former was cut down mid 20th century, the latter is in a protected location,watched over by the forest service.

    By the way, your adjectives are overused as well.
    Congratulations on having viewers that are either not too bright or just want to laugh at yet another lame piece that you have once again made into top ten material.
    No thanks.

    Nobert,
    Great article! If god hadn\’t planted a tree, we wouldn\’t be able to enjoy its many conviences, such as paper, and of course everyones favorite convience, the house. I have a maple tree in my back yard. Though my yard is small I wouldn\’t have bought the house without it. I have had many great cookouts under this tree. The day it dies will be the day I move. Trees are one of gods most beautiful wonders.One of my favorite tree is the Rain tree. One of my aunts and uncles used to have a Rain tree in they\’re back yard. My cousins and I would play under this tree for hours. The trees on your list I like the most are the Emancipation tree, the Ginkgo, the Major Oak, and the tree of Life.Excellent article.!!! Keep up the great work Nobert.

    Randy

    Very nice pix and info. I grew up a few miles from the Emancipation Oak and never knew it was there.

    Question: I thought that the bristlecone pines were the earth’s oldest trees at 4000 years; so how can the baobab be 6000 years old? I also thought carbon dating could only date dead material, but that may not be true.

    This isn’t a tree but
    I thought your young gardeners would enjoy an gardening adventure, growing the TickleMe Plant (Mimosa pudica). Recently featured by the National Gardening Association, http://www.kidsgardeningstore.com/14-1030.html
    If you want to give your young gardeners an experience they will never forget, consider having them grow a TickleMe Plant. This is the plant that will close its leaves and lower its branches when you tickle it. They sprout in days and can be grown indoors any time of year. Just Google TickleMe Plants or go to http://www.TickleMePlant.com for information seeds and growing kits. This plant has turned many kids into plant and nature lovers. I know, because I grow TickleMe Plants in my classroom.
    Happy Growing
