http://www.toptenz.net/top-10-amazing... - There's something majestic about the very oldest of trees and how they witnessed the rise and fall of numerous civilizations. Who hasn't heard about General Sherman -- the largest known living single stem tree in the world -- or Old Tjikko -- the Earth's oldest (9,550 years) living individual clonal tree?

I find Julian Hight's quote to be the most representative for this list: "Ancient trees are a living link to our past and they often provide a fragile constant in an ever-changing world. This is their story, but in equal measure it is also ours. Each tree has its own distinct shape and character which it carries through its lifetime."

With this in mind, let's learn more about some of the world's most fascinating trees: not just the oldest ones, but the ones with a "distinct shape and character." There are probably hundreds of spectacular trees, but the following ten really caught my attention.
