Trees are truly one of Mother Nature’s many miracles. If you do a quick Google search for tree facts, you’ll find some very interesting information that you probably never knew before, or at least I did.
Back in 2009, I remember seeing the Redwood tree on the cover of National Geographic. That picture made history because never before had a tree so large been photographed and pieced together into one picture. Then, in 2010, I wrote about the Rainbow Eucalyptus tree. Wow, I had never seen tree bark like that before. The only kind of tree bark I have ever seen is brown. Come to find out, lots of trees have colorful bark.
Botanists have all kinds of technical words and phrases to describe the outer layer of a tree. But for the most part, we just call the tree’s skin bark. French photographer, Cedric Pollet, is also intrigued by tree bark. He spent ten years traveling around the world in search of the most fascinating tree bark. He’s compiled his findings in his book called Bark: An Intimate Look at the World’s Trees. Here is just a small sampling of his tree bark photographs. Mother Nature is the ultimate inspiration to me, and these are magnificent.
