誠如作者說的-
我如何能不愛樹?它把二氧化碳改變我們呼吸的氧氣,它為無數的小動物提供庇護....
當然,並非這些驚人的美麗的樹都是樹(紫藤蘿是一種藤本植物,杜鵑是灌木和竹子屬於禾本科),但我們把他們包括在此,因為他們夠大,夠美。別忘了,一旦我們走出去,呼吸新鮮空氣,也要擁抱在你前面的樹,對它們說聲謝謝!

How do I love thee, tree? Let me count the ways; you change carbon dioxide into the oxygen we breathe, you sequester carbon, and you provide shelter for countless critters. There are many reasons for which we should all be tree-hugging hippies, but within the scope of this article, all we’ll focus on is how amazing some of them look.

Granted, not all of these amazing beautiful trees are trees (the Wisteria is a vine, Rhododendrons are shrubs, and bamboo technically belongs to the grass family), but we’ll give them a pass because they are amazing, huge and beautiful. So once you step outside and take a breath of fresh air, hug the nearest tree and say thank you!

If you know of an amazing tree not on this list, you can submit it at the bottom of this post.
