16 most magnificent trees in the world

 

There are many reasons to love trees: they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen that we breathe, create a pleasant cool shade on a hot day, are home to animals. And another reason is that some of them look amazing.

Although not all of the following plants are trees (wisteria is a kind of flowering plants in the pea family, rhododendron is a bush and baobab tree belongs to the family of cereals).
