RoadTrippers: America's Most Unbelievable Trees

"I think that I shall never see 
A poem lovely as a tree..."

This famous Joyce Kilmer poem sums up just what makes a tree so special. Of course, there's the science as well: Without forests to cut back on carbon dioxide, make oxygen, and provide a habitat for other plants and animals vital to our ecosystem, human life on Earth as we know it couldn't exist. And, as Kilmer so eloquently points out, they're quite nice to look at as well. From a tree that's as old as Methuselah to a veritable circus of trees, there are some pretty impressive plants that you can find across the country.

Oak Alley Plantation is home to lovely gardens and some beautiful antebellum architecture, but the main attraction here has to be the property's namesake alley of 300-year-old live oaks. They're always green, and the quarter-mile stretch of road lined with 28 trees is absolutely gorgeous.
