Acacia trees are famous for the Biblical accounts which state that the wood was used to build the Ark of the Covenant, the Tabernacle in the Wilderness and the altar of God (Exodus 25 - 38).
"Solitary trees, if they grow at all, grow strong"
The acacia tree often grows as a solitary tree in the deserts of Africa, Egypt, Israel and Australia. One famous acacia, the Tree of Ténéré, grew in Nigeria 250 miles (400 km) from any other tree. The secret to that tree's survival was that its roots had tapped into water at 131 feet (40 m) below ground level. Unfortunately, the tree was vandalized in 1973 and is no more; but a water well in the desert now marks the place where it stood.
Almond Tree Images
Ornaments of almond tree blossoms made of gold were used to top the seven branches of the oil lamp, Menorah, used in the Biblical Tabernacle in the Wilderness and in the Temple in Jerusalem (Exodus 25, 37). Because of this, the almond tree is considered to have spiritual qualities.
Almond trees are native to the Middle East, where they have been cultivated for more than 5,000 years. The nuts of the wild tree are toxic; the nuts of the sweet, domesticated tree are not.
Today, more almond trees are grown in the United States than in any other country.

Actually, the banana is more of a plant than a tree. But, it grows as tall as a tree and that is why it is, more often than not, commonly referred to as a tree.
Also, banana plants can live more than 100 years, just like trees.
These make great ornamental additions to a garden, even if you don't want the fruit. And, they are fast growers!

When I see birches bend to left and right
Across the lines of straighter darker trees,
I like to think some boy's been swinging them.
from the poem Birches by American poet Robert Frost

Most American children are familiar with the famous poem, Birches, written by Robert Frost in 1929. Frost admitted that he used to swing on the branches of birch trees on his father's farm. The poem ends with this line:
"One could do worse than be a swinger of birches."
