9. Plane tree from Budatin, Slovakia

This 270-year-old London plane tree (Platanus hispanica) lives in Žilina's the Castle park in North Slovakia. It stands side-by-side with a smaller plane that is not quite as robust, yet, the "two plane trees grow together as two different brothers, their roots are inextricably bound." And that's not just woo-woo tree talk, see: Trees can form bonds like an old couple and look after each other.
