Trees are among the world's oldest living organisms, and they come in every size, shape, and color imaginable. Flowering trees, thorny trees, and rainbow trees are all magnificent and tend to amplify any environment in which they grow. Here are some of the world's most beautiful trees.
Gu Guanyin Buddhist Temple in the Zhongnan Mountains has a 1,400-year-old Chinese Ginkgo tree with beautiful yellow leaves. As the wind and water from the nearby mountains blow through the leaves, they turn the temple into a yellow ocean.
125+ Year Old Rhododendron
The Rhododendron is actually a shrub, not a tree! These species can develop into shrubs or young trees. This lovely photograph was taken of a massive Rhododendron in front of someone's home in Canada.
Madagascar's Baobab trees
These massive trees can reach heights of 100 feet and widths of 35 feet! They are absolutely massive. What fascinates me about them is their ability to store a large amount of water in their trunks. Baobab trees can store nearly 32,000 gallons of water, allowing them to withstand droughts.
Portland, Oregon's Japanese Maple
This tree is so well-known that it has its own Flickr group. It has been featured on National Geographic and is located in Portland's Japanese Garden.
At nearly 5,000 years old, Methuselah is one of the oldest known trees. It is in Inyo County, California, but its exact location is kept secret to protect it from destruction.
It is part of a bristlecone pine grove, where another slightly older tree can still be found.
Sequoia sempervirens tree
General Sherman is a giant sequoia tree in California's Sequoia National Park. It is currently the world's largest known living single stem tree.
The Angel Oak tree.
Charleston, South Carolina is home to the Angel Oak tree. The tree is approximately 400 years old, and its branches branch out in every direction.
The Trees of Dead Vlei
These skeleton-like trees can be found in Deadvlei, Namibia, and are estimated to be around 100 years old. It is said to have once been teeming with life, but now only houses the skeletons of the trees. The temperature is so low that the trees that remain cannot decompose properly.
Tree of Dragon Blood
These bizarre-looking trees can only be found on Yemen's Socotra Island. It's called dragonblood because of its dark red resin, which resembles thick blood. Its unusual appearance, which resembles an upright umbrella, only adds to its intriguing features.
While the Pando tree may appear to be a massive forest, it is actually the color of a single quaking aspen! It is the largest single organism with a single underground root system. It weighs approximately 6,000,000 kilograms and is nearly 80,000 years old, making it one of the oldest known organisms. It is located in Utah's Fishlake National Forest.
