Tree of Tenere  that was once considered the most isolated tree on EarthThere wasn’t another tree near it for 250 miles.

The Tree of Ténéré was knocked down by an allegedly drunk Libyan truck driver in 1973. On November 8, 1973, the dead tree was moved to the Niger National Museum in the capital Niamey.

It has since been replaced by a simple metal sculpture representing the tree.
