Trees, The longest-living organisms on Earth, beautify and protect our environment by providing colour, shelter, and shade. They renew our air supply by soaking up carbon dioxide and producing oxygen.

4. Ginkgo Tree Tunnel , Japan
Gingko biloba is a highly venerated tree in Japanese culture. Six ginkgo trees survived the Hiroshima bombing, continued to grow and are still alive today.
Therefore, the Japanese regard the gingko as “the bearer of hope”. It is also known as "the survivor" and “the living fossil.” Around 65,000 ginkgoes grace Tokyo ’s streets and parks
5. Yew Tree Tunnel , UK
The medieval Aberglasney House features one of the most beautiful gardens in Wales , UK . They have been an inspiration to writers since 1470. The Yew Tunnel is a popular tourist attraction in this area. Believe it or not, it took nine years of pruning to restore this unique archway. “Years of neglect had left it unsafe and with a perilous future, as the once formally clipped structure had grown even higher than the top of the Mansion itself. It is so nice to see it looking invigorated and healthy again, I had every confidence that with careful restoration it would help its future longevity, but I have to confess that it did look drastic at the time,” declared Graham Rankin, one of Aberglasney’s directors.
The Yew Tunnel is thought to have been planted by the Dyer family of Aberglasney, during the 18th century.
6. The Dark Hedges, Northern Ireland
Tucked away in the county of Antrim , these beautiful beech trees are thought to be around 300 years old. According to local records, James Stuart planted the 150 beech trees in the 18th century, to impress guests as they approached his splendid property, Gracehill House.
Legend tells that the spirit of a maid, who lived in a neighboring mansion and died in mysterious circumstances hundreds of years ago, haunts the country road. “Grey Lady” silently floats along the road and quickly disappears as she reaches the last beech tree.
7. Bamboo Path , Japan
The Sagano Bamboo Forest is located in Arashiyama, a nationally-designated historic site. The pathway is 500m long, and runs through one of Japan ’s most beautiful bamboo forests. No wonder the Agency for Cultural Affairs declared Arashiyama a “Place of Scenic Beauty”. This forest is close to many famous temples and shrines, including the Adashino Nenbutsu-ji Temple .
The sound the wind makes, as it blows through the tall bamboo trees, has been voted by the Japanese authorities as one of 100 "must-preserve" sounds of Japan
8. Tunnel of Love , Ukraine
The Ukrainian Tunnel of Love is actually a two-mile sector of private railway that serves a woodworking plant near Klevan, a small city in western Ukraine .
Couples pass through this romantic tunnel to make a wish. The myth goes that, if their love is strong and pure, the wish will come true.
May all of your wishes come true, but watch out for the train! It runs three times a day through the leafy tunnel.
9. Jacarandas Walk, South Africa
Over 10 million trees keep Johannesburg green. It,is home to the world’s largest man-made forest. There are at least 49 species of Jacaranda, most of them native to South America and the Caribbean basin. They bloom in October and were imported to South Africa over one hundred years ago.
10. Wisteria Tunnel , Japan
As soon as the cherry blossom season ends, the gorgeous Wisteria flowers take their turn on the Japanese floral calendar. The Fuji Matsuri, or Wisteria Festival,
is celebrated each spring in Tokyo ,Shizuoka ,and Okazaki .
The Ashikaga Flower Park is one of the best places to admire different varieties of Wisteria - the double-petaled, the giant, the yellow, white, pink, and purple.
