Coolest Looking Trees On The Planet

While we aren’t true tree-huggers here at Like A Boss, we do enjoy natural beauty. Trees turn carbon dioxide into oxygen like true bosses, so we can continue to breathe. Check out these pics of a few beautiful ones.

 

144-Year-Old Wisteria

You’ll have to travel to the Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan to see this amazing tree that isn’t really a tree. Wisterias are considered vines (DO IT FOR THE VINE!), but some of them look like trees and that’s enough for us non-scientists to call it a tree! This huge one covers half an acre!

 

Dragonblood Trees

These shroom-like trees in Yemen give off crimson red sap, which has led to them being named dragonblood trees.

 

Wind-Swept Trees

Slope Point, New Zealand lies about 3,000 miles from the South Pole and around 3,150 miles from the equator, which places it in an area with insanely violent weather conditions. The Antarctic winds produced here have whipped the trees around so much that they’re permanently showing the signs of being wind-swept by the powerful force of Mother Nature.

 

Blooming Cherry Trees

In Bonn, Germany, this tunnel formed by stunning cherry blossoms over a street can be seen each spring.

 

125-Year-Old Rhododendron

Arguably the most famous rhododendron in the world, this 125-year-old majestic motherf###er is located in Canada. The Canadians know how to do it up big in Ladysmith, British Columbia. While it isn’t technically a tree, because it’s considered a shrub, who cares? This thing is amazing!

 

Japanese Maple

It’s located in Portland, Oregon, but we don’t have much of a back story on this one aside from it being exquisitely beautiful.

 

Rainbow Eucalyptus

Look at that bark! This particular one was found in Kauai, Hawaii (just another great reason to visit Hawaii), but they can be found throughout the South Pacific. Its shedding bark leaves colorful patches and the wood is perfect for making paper!

 

Baobab Trees

Located in Madagascar, these trees utilize their massive trunks to store water for droughts.

About Sascha Brian

Sascha Brian
Known around here as "the German", I am indeed German, but have also spent some time traveling the world. With 10 years of my life spent in the United States, rumor has it that I may even know how to grill a great burger. I don't wear socks with sandals any longer, but I still drink beer and eat sauerkraut like a German. When I'm not writing about motivational and inspirational people on Like A Boss, I can usually be found lifting things up and putting them back down in my garage gym (a.k.a. the dungeon).
