Trees are an important part of life on earth and there are some very beautiful and magnificent varieties found throughout the world. Here are some of the most unique trees from around the world:
1. Ta Prohm in Cambodia
Ta Prohm is an amazing religious temple and one of many in the Angkor complex in Siem Reap. Why is it so popular with visitors? Its beauty and number of fig trees and ceiba that grow above and through ancient stones, as they reclaim the space. If you don’t want your tree to start affecting your property like this, you could use a Poole Tree Surgeon like Kieran Boyland
2. Bristlecone pine
Bristlecone Pine is one of the tough customers. Found mainly in West America, it is very resistant to very bad weather, insects and going rotten. Some individual cones have been found to be 5000 years old!
3. Jacaranda blue
This tree, located in South America, produces the most vivid and intense purple bloom. The colour has attracted many people to use benign species in ornamental plants throughout the world.
4. Ponderosa pine
In Bryce Canyon National Park, you will find Ponderosa pine which can grow up to 150 feet. These tall and majestic trees can be found in the Agua Canyon Connecting Trail area in the park and are worth a visit.
5. Banyan tree
This is a tree that is actually a fig that grows from within the cracks of other tree species. Creepily, they grow around and suffocate the host tree. Some are very old, around 6,000 years old. Banyan trees are found in many different places in the world and are unique because they have the widest trunk of all trees – around 137 feet.
6. Axel Erlandson and his art trees
A farmer named Axel Erlandson once created a tree in this unusual and extraordinary form, but never revealed his secret how he made them grow into strange shapes.
7. Joshua Tree
Found in Southwest America, the Joshua tree is actually a type of yucca. Local Mormon pilgrims initially gave them their names because they thought the trees resembled Joshua’s Biblical character.
8. Spider tree
Pakistani spider trees are truly extraordinary. In 2010, massive flooding hit many areas of the country and native spiders descended on trees when the water level rose. They create intricate cocoons in the trees that make for some impressive sights.
9. Japanese Maple
These trees are native to East Asia and their rosy pink flowers prove a popular choice to grow throughout the world.
