The 15 Most Gorgeous Trees On The Planet

There are plenty of reasons to love trees: they help produce the oxygen we breathe, they provide shelter from the sun on a hot day; they’re the perfect home for many different kinds of animal. Here’s one more reason: some of them look downright amazing.

We admit that some of these aren’t technically trees (the wisteria is a vine; the rhododendron is a bush, and the baobab is actually related to grass plants). But we couldn’t bear to leave them out of this list — they’re just so wonderful to look at.
