Have a look at this collection of 9 very strange trees from around the world (and I mean strange in a good way!). From a giant redwood tree in California with a giant hole cut through its trunk to allow cars to drive through it, to the El Arbol de La Sabina tree that looks as if it has been shaped by the power of wind, these are some trees that are definitely worth checking out in person if you could be so lucky.
1. El Arbol de La Sabina – this tree can grow in most soils and climates, but can be found in the Canary Islands
2. Dragon Tree in Canary Islands
3. Chapel Tree – one of the most famous trees in France
4. Baobab Trees
A toilet built inside a Baobab tree in the Kayila Lodge, Zambia (very strange indeed)
