I personally haven't spent much time with nature lately, so it was refreshing for these things to pop up while perusing the interwebs. Hopefully you feel the same...

Wow, those are amazing! I love those mushroom trees, and the toiletry too. (Toiletry, toilet-tree...) The one with ovals holes, too.

Here's another collection:

Toiletree is what went through my head!

Beautiful constructions. I want one. So very, very much. Nature is the best architect. I'm just not so sure of her engineering skills
I might have that backwards but I'm not sure


Either way, it is beautiful.

Oh wow, toilet-tree went right over my head. I never thought about it...
I'm getting slow in my old age. Kind of reminds me of the Hobbit homes... For a minute, it makes you wanna live a life in a tree. But then you might just get bored since theres no Wizards and Dwarves and all that...

Love the pic of the Baobab Tree (2nd picture) also known as the "Upside-down Tree (Adansonia Digitata), could have been taken in my home country Namibia! These are huge and there are some in the north of Namibia which can be driven through, others in which toilets have been installed etc!

I thought that tree looked upside down.

I've seen a boabob twice. But, I'll be darned if I can tell you exactly where. One time was at a zoo, the other time might have been in Key West, Florida. I remember a teacher saying that it looked liked the roots were in the air rather than down in the ground.

I hate getting old. I'm sure these memories were fresh when I made them. Hurumph...

Some of those are great.

What's the name of the trees in the last image you posted OP?

Just that they really remind me of those images from Mars, that look like trees looking from the canopy down.

Cheers.

I believe that is a Dragon Tree from Socotra:

I would love to live inside a tree. Be all Kebler elff-like and whatnot.

I'd make cookies all day long...

Cool trees
I'v always wanted a tree house, now I have a daughter, shes the perfect excuse to get one built in a few years


Here'/s a special Tree I'd like to add too, its in Bahrain and is about 400 years old. Its special because the tree is majorly isolated and how its been able to stay alive is a mystery. Google Earth ' Tree of Life'

Possibly a mega wind storm,or maybe a tsunami barelled through these trees when they were young saplings.
What we see in the pic are the survivors,forced into this shape,yet living past the event.
Or is it a tidal thing?
Hmmm,I know not-but thats a great photo.

Some of those trees look like something you would see in a Dr. Seuss book, it`s hard to believe that they are actually real. Great thread
