Tree Wish List!

Hey there! When It comes to creating a botanical garden, It's important to have trees. I love trees, I used to climb them all the time when I was little. Trees come in many shapes and forms. All trees are important, they provide fresh air, some help us in medicinal ways, others have economic importance, some are so beautiful who wouldn't want to have them in their jungle, they help with our soil & they provide homes for animals. I started collecting a few years ago, I already have some of these below, I wont stop till I have them all. Some of these trees need special environments so creating those settings is very important for the trees success. If I'm missing any trees let me know I will add them to the list. Do you have a Tree Wish List? If so what are they? Post Bellow! Maybe I can help make those Tree Dreams Come True! Stay Flora Obsessed XOXO, Happy Gardening!
