All trees provide us with oxygen, but some do far more than that - they have a story to tell.
These incredible images reveal some of the world's most remarkable trees, trees that are among the world's most beautiful, oldest and in some cases, biggest. And they are trees that, one way or another, have become entwined in the cultures of surrounding communities. The pictures come from a stunning book called Wise Trees, which charts historically and culturally significant trees, from California to India. It features images taken by photographers Diane Cook and Len Jenshel, who spent two years travelling the globe to snap pictures of 59 extraordinary trees. They say that they wanted to make the book to raise awareness of the enduring role trees have played both nurturing and sheltering humanity. Have a look-

The Great Basin bristlecone pine trees, pictured, in Inyo National Forest in California are some of the oldest trees in the world - with some specimens determined to be over 5,000 years old. According to the book, the exact location of these ancient specimens is kept under wraps by forest custodians to thwart destructive souvenir hunters.
