There are many reasons for which we should all love trees: they change carbon dioxide into the oxygen we breathe, sequester carbon, and provide shelter for many creatures. But within this article, we want to focus on how amazing some of them look.
Granted, not all of these amazing beautiful trees are trees (the Wisteria is a vine, Rhododendrons are shrubs, and bamboo technically belongs to the grass family), but we’ll give them a pass because they are amazing, huge and beautiful. So once you step outside and take a breath of fresh air, hug the nearest tree and say thank you!
