10 Most Magnificent Trees In the World

The Ten Most Magnificent Trees In the World - at least by one person's measure - are listed with photographs on Neatorama.com and if you have a few minutes to take a look you will be rewarded.

The first entry, the Lone Cypress in Monterrey CA was to be expected. The Basket Tree is a surprising feat of patience by bean farmer Axel Erlandson. Erlandson's hobby was to prune and graft trees into fantastic forms.

The Giant Sequoias and Drive Through trees are there along with Chapel Oak and the Tule Tree.

Did you know that a monkey bread tree can store over 30,000 gallons of water in their trunk? That's just one of the tree-facts you'll learn at this site.
