Lone cypress tree

Buffeted by the cold Pacific Ocean wind, the scraggly Lone Cypress(Cupressus macrocarpa)in Pebble Beach, Monterey Peninsula, California isn’t a particularly large tree. It makes up for its small size, but with its iconic status as a stunningly beautiful tree in isolation, framed by an even more amazing backdrop of the Pacific Ocean. The tree is almost 250 years old.

2. Baobab

The amazing baobab(Adansonia) or monkey bread tree can grow up to nearly 100feet(30 m) tall and 35 feet(11 m) wide. Their defining characteristic: their swollen trunk is water storage- the Baobab tree can store as much as 31700 gallons(120,000 L) of water to endure harsh drought conditions.
