Costa Rica – Trees

Saw a couple of unusually tall and big trees in Costa Rica. Nicknamed the “tree of life,” baobabs play a key role in their ecosystem. They help keep soil conditions humid, promote nutrient recycling, and prevent soil erosion. And, they are an important source of food, water, and shelter for various birds, reptiles, and insects. I had to take three shots for a closer look at the tree. Saw the second tree at our hotel. Couldn’t identify it but it was definitely large.
