Universal Trees

Trees have a universal feeling about them. You can see some kind of tree almost everywhere in the world. Trees adapt to climates, they change leaf structure, develop thorns and create poison for protection.

One of the things I found intriguing was the trees in Africa and Arizona are similar in many ways. Today's featured work is a Quiver Tree. The leaves are like those seen on a succulent plant, very thick. It is a species of aloe and is native to South Africa. This is were I first saw this type of tree. The Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix, AZ has several.
