Oldest and most unusual trees from around the world

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.
