The Seven Most Amazing Trees March 15, 2010

Posted by curiouskids in Plants.

Over at MNN is a great article about the Seven Most Amazing Trees in the World.  My favorites:

  • The 2,000 year old Montezuma Cypress, a tree that is bigger around than it is tall.
  • The Pirangi cashew tree, which has a weird genetic mutation and sprout roots when one of its branches touches the ground.  Over time it has grown to cover more than 2 acres of land!
  • In Bahrain, in the middle of the desert, hundreds of miles away from any other tree, is the Tree of Life.  Its roots must reach very, very far into the sand to find water deep underground.
