Trees of Huangshan, China

The trees of Huangshan, China are famous for their beauty. You'll notice that many of the trees growing naturally on the mountainsides look like bonsai -- perhaps they were the original inspiration for bonsai styling.

These pictures were taken by one of our club members when she recently visited Huangshan. She reports --

Many Chinese paintings are of Huangshan scenery. There are many peaks of granite and century old pines, firs, ginkos, Chinese torreyas, Chinese sweet gums, nanmus, camphor woods and the Magua trees, remnants of the glacial era.

The Yellow Mountains have flowering plants; Goddess Flower the Yellow Mountains Azalea, camellia, plum, lily, crape myrtle, orchid, Spring Heralding Flower. Here is a virtual tour of Huangshan -- Click here.

Huangshan is a 50 minute flight from Shanghai. Our taxi driver guide told us mid-September is the best time to visit when the fall leaves change color.
