The Tree of Life in Bahrain is one of the world's loneliest trees. The mesquite tree sits at the highest point in the barren desert of Bahrain, hundreds of miles from the another natural tree and is thought to have tap roots reaching hundreds of feet down to aquifers. The exact age of the tree is unknown though it's generally believed to be more than 400 years old.

Good old tree

The tree of love, also called tree of life, is in fact the union of two different trees, the fig and Hasina. You must know that the fig tree is a strangler fig tree: a tree that had a lot of water tends to be a parasite on other plants close to him. Usually the fig kills the host tree, but wonderful thing in this case the two trees live in perfect harmony.

This is the Angel Oak Tree, in Charlston, an enormous live oak tree named after it's previous owners Martha and Justin Angel. The tree is thought to be over 1500 years old. Much like the Grand Canyon, photos can't really convey the size of this enormous tree. A person standing in front of the tree would stand about halfway up the trunk. The Angel Oak is 65 feet tall and over 25 feet around the trunk...

The Tree Of Life, Bahrain. Oh to such that I could be a lone tree thriving in desert as this does!

Tree of Life (Arabic: شجرة الحياة; transliterated: Shajarat al-Hayah) is a 400-year old mesquite tree in Bahrain which is considered a natural wonder. This unique tree stands alone in the desert about 1.2 miles (two kilometers) from the Jebel Dukhan. The source of water for this tree still remains a mystery. Rumor is that this was the Garden of Eden.

The Crowhurst Yew in Surrey. The door was in place before 1850. Yes; it really is on a drunken angle. This ancient yew tree is thought to be up to 4000 years old. Despite the trunk being hollow, the tree appears to be in good health.
