Published 3 years ago

Life in all of its shapes and forms is a constant reminder of resilience and an unwavering will to endure. And maybe nothing shows this better than trees thriving in the most impossible landscapes.

Weathered by about 370 million years of evolution, these guys have adapted to survive no matter what and now cover an estimated 30% of the Earth’s land with around 3 trillion adult trees, including places where nothing else could grow in. Proving to us once more, that there’s creativity embedded right into the fabric of nature.
