 Large Banyon Tree
Banyan Tree
The magnificent Banyan tree is sometimes called the "walking tree" because the aerial roots it sends down from its branches take root in the ground and gradually thicken to form new trunks parallel to the original. As the tree grows, more roots are sent down farther and farther from the original trunk. Yet throughout the process, the Banyan remains one tree with many, many trunks, all covered with its extensive leaf canopy.
Found in the tropics and subtropics, its wide spreading branches provide wonderful shade and it's unique structure leads one to images of Peter Pan and wood sprites.
Starting at $40 per inch.


Pink Dogwood Tree

The Pink or White Dogwood
The Dogwood is distinguished by its twisted trunk which contrasts intriguingly with the graceful, almost candelabra-like form of the ends of its branches. This form results in the blooms being enchantingly layered, a look EarthScapes seeks to replicate. Legend is that this tree used to be the large and hard as oaks, and was thus used for crucifixions. Jesus, looking on the tree and empathizing with its sorry at being used for such a cruel purpose, promised this would never again happen. From that time on the tree has been small and delicate, and one can see the cross symbolized in its four pedaled, rusty red tipped flowers.
Starting at $19 per inch.
