Does anybody know what kind of trees these are, and where they grow?

Those sure do look fake, don't they?

From what I can see, it looks like the Dragon Blood Tree, a "vulnerable" species from an island off Africa near Yemen.

It's an evergreen. Who wants to climb up and hang the lights and ornaments?


On of my favorite trees is the banyan... which grows outward then drops new roots to expand.


By Jove!

Looks like you found it!
Dracaena cinnabari, the dragon blood tree, is native to Socotra, Yemen. It is so called due to the red sap that the trees produce.
Very interesting tree. It’s related to asparagus.



It looks like broccoli...
