If you are a  nature lover, it's a sure bet that you are familiar with so many trees existing out there. Can you name some of them based on pictures alone? This is the exciting challenge for you in this quiz!

Not only do we want our tree pride, but we also honor these living "creatures" of nature in a special way. Thus, there are countries that have official trees in their roster. It will also be a fun activity to spot what the national tree of a given country is, don't you think? This quiz will have that international challenge, too. 

Some countries even go further and farther than having national trees. Some of their country's official coat of arms have designed trees into them. And that's a really cool way of thanking Mother Nature for the wonderful existence of trees.
