Hi!
I am writing here because not so long ago, I bought the Safari ltd Trees Toob (I didn't photograph it yet, so I'm posting a web photo). The trees are really cute. Does anyone have this toob? [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Susanne entered it, not long time ago, on Toy Animal Wiki.
If you click each link here, you'll find great pictures of all these trees. Very Happy

Yes, I have this toob. Very Happy
I love trees, and when I drive, I always notice free standing trees.
Amazing how a large tree can change a landscape. After a hard storm, with fallen giants, everythings changes Crying or Very sad

It is interesting how the dfferent kinds of tree have different siluettes, and many years ago I tried to make photos to illustrate it....unfortunately it takes a photographer with better skills than mine Laughing geek

If this toob had been Danish, there would have been oak, beech and birch, but the ones in this toob are also interesting. study

Like I learned in my photographer spree, it is hard to show the "soul" of a tree, - it goes for plastic too, especially such small models, but it is a good try  Very Happy

I just saw the Flowers Toob is missing on TAI... maybe I sould buy this one as well?

About ten years ago, I made researches about the trees and flowers of my home region. I recycled my old schoolbags and made pages with construction paper sheets, families  (salicaea, betulacea, pinacea, etc) separated by colors. Each page has a photo, a description and a dried specimen (leaf for each tree and flower for each flower). Here is the picture I took for the page of the Yellow Birch (Betula alleghaniensis):[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

What a beautyful picture of a birch tree cheers
It is wonderful to find such a report ! Imagine all the time we spent, making stuff in school...and then it is gone Crying or Very sad

A great idea to get the flower toob  flower Very Happy

Btw, - I see I need to take pictures of the fruit one.
I got it because I thought it would look great with some fruit among the monkeys on the shelf, but they are so ridiculously big for most of them Laughing

That's a great picture and surely a very educational and enthertaining work,! Very Happy
Although I live in a central area of a big city, I am surrounded by trees. I open my door and there is a loquat in front, then, an old and tall araucaria, an Avenue full of tilias and a big garden with hundreds of trees of several species, some of them exotic.
If I go to the other side, 5 minutes walking, I have an old conventual territory also with lots of different tree species, very beautiful, actually. City is full of jacarandas, lots of botanical gardens that I can access just walking but, my favorite trees are some sumptuous puhutukawa trees that can be found in small urban gardens, they look like living poems. I wished kids were more stimulated to make works about the trees around the places where they live, it would help them to be more sensitized to Nature.
Flowers toob could easily enter TAI, I don't know then where to put them, maybe they can be added to the species where they belong as we're doing with trees. Should we put a figure of a Susanne's giant apple together with an apple tree? Laughing

Araucarias, jacarandas, puhutukawas... lots of trees we don't have here in Québec! Here are samples of what we see in forests here:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Among the trees we can distinguish are: fir trees, white spruces, Tilia americana, Ulmus americana, sugar maples, Populus tremuloides...

However, as you can see, it's not in Spring that our North american trees are the most spectacular, but in FALL. Almost all my tree pictures have been taken in September and October, during what we call here the "Indian Summer"; it is in that time of the year that the leaves change colors (especially the maples) and become red, orange and yellow. The only wild trees that are more spectacular in Spring than in Fall are Prunus Virginiana and Prunus serotina, because of their cute cream flowers disposed in "sausages". In town, there are also lots of Crabapple Malus (of all shades of pink from dark fushia to pure white) and Sorbus aucuparia (this one coming from Europe) that have pretty flowers.

Those are beautiful pictures! Canadian forests are famous in the entire world once everyone recognizes the Canadian flag witht the maple leaf. Not many country flags are so illustrative of national flora as Canada's.
The trees I mentioned in Lisbon are also not native from Portugal and they cannot be found in Portuguese florests. They're just urban trees that were introduced in Portugal a long time ago and widely used as ornamental trees.
Maritime and stone pines, several oak trees, sweet chestnuts and eucalyptus are relatively common in Portuguese forests. Eucalyptus, were recently introduced and are quite negative to the local flora. Most of them are not spectacular trees or vibrant as maples, as monumental as fir trees but I find all kind of oaks really beautiful. Very Happy
As a kid, in my homeland, I was blessed with the spectacular flowered effect of almond trees and I really enjoyed to hide under fig trees. Climbing blueberry trees was also one of my favorite sports. Laughing Though, these last trees are cultivated. :)

Laughing They can be 10 m tall, not giants but surely high enough for a kid as I was, I am talking about Morus alba and Morus nigra, obviously there are lots of other plants with fruits called blueberries and we also have these small ones that are quite different and not trees, actually.
We used to climb these trees to get the best leaves once it was common to keep silkworms (Bombyx mori) as pets inside of shoeboxes.
I can warrant you, that after all these years, I can remember the exact location of all these trees in my homeland, although we cannot find these anymore due to urbanistic development.
They are quite easy to climb. :)
There's a 72 metters tall eucalyptus in Portugal, it is considered the tallest tree of Europe, I wished I could climb it. Laughing monkey

Yes Susanne, they're mulberries, I should check it first once I even know their scientific names. Though, English is still somewhat confuse for me with names of fruits, bluberries, blackberries, mulberries, bilberries, it is a complicated fruit salade for me yet. geek After checking what a blueberry means in Portuguese language, I figured that I should be a gnome to climb them. Laughing

Very nice set Valerie, congrats!

Blueberry tree speaks also to my imagination, that would be fantastic, and with blueberries big as apples, that would be a lot of blue coloured kids around  Very Happy
I guess we can have a new special STS version of that well-known song now:
"I found my thrill
On Blueberry Hill Tree..."
lol!

Reading again this topic, I think it could be a good idea to open a topic about trees around our house... scratch

BLACK SPRUCE

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
STAGHORN SUMAC

Here are two trees we see often in Québec: Black Spruce (Picea mariana) and Staghorn Sumac (Rhus tiphina).

The Black Spruce is one of the most common trees in the Boreal Forest in Canada. It is a conifer with a tall, slender silhouette, reaching 20 meters high and more. It thrives in very moisty grounds. Its spines are short and form an acute angle with the branch they are on. It is very recognisable by its huge gathering of cones at the very top of the tree.

The Staghorn Sumac is an angiosperm tree. It is not a tall tree, barely reaching 5 meters at the top. It kind of looks like a palm tree, except for the fact that its leaves are disposed in opposition with each other, instead of like a fan. Its branches are covered with a thick, greyish soft velvet; that is what gave the tree its name. Its fruits are grape-looking gatherings of red, velvet-covered nuts.
