  1. I love trees. I try to plant trees wherever and whenever possible.
    I believed that the giant Redwood Trees are endemic to the USA, but their presence in NZ is news to me.
    Loved this post. In some future post, please show more details of this park, that is, how to reach, where is it located and other such features.. ☺️

    1. That’s such a wonderful thing you do Abir. I too carry seeds ( from fruits eaten at home) and throw them wherever I travel. They grow naturally.

      Yes, it was a pleasant sight to walk through redwoods in NZ. Sure, I will share more details in the separate post. I am so glad you take so much interest in gaining knowledge. Thank you for dropping by! 🙂

        Trees are our allies in the War against Global Warming. There should be more trees and more cold weather globally.
        Waiting for your next post on NZ.. ☺️

  2. Oh my my! It’s not just a post. It’s love. Trees 🌲🌳🌴are love. I love them like anything. Every morning, I go to (used to) office, I’d touch trees, greet them, and smiled at them. 🤷🏾‍♂

    And I’m really jealous of you Nanchi, you’ve been to so many places not only in India, but abroad too. 💁🏾‍♂

    I loved each and every fact of this post. Especially, 100 years old tree. ❤

    1. I too love love love trees! This was a heaven for me. I talk to trees and smile. Trees are the most selfless living things on this whole planet.

      You can’t be jealous, Sumit because alike me you are not a traveller kind of person. You like staying at home while I love to travel. You travel through your creativity na.

      I am glad you liked the fun facts. Thanks for dropping by! 😊🙌
