Tenere Tree


Vlad Gerasimov  ·  4 January 2008
Recently, I learned the sad story of Arbre du Ténéré - the most isolated tree on Earth (the only one within more than 400 km). I was so touched I could not help making a wallpaper about it! From Wikipedia: It was the last surviving tree of  a group of trees that grew when the Sahara desert was less parched than it  is today. The tree was knocked down by  an allegedly drunk Libyan truck driver in 1973.

First comment! hah! This one is ok.

Love it! Thanks!

I've heard that a metal sculpture now stands where the most isolated tree once did; a wallpaper featuring that would make a great partner to this one.

The only tree in 400km and a drunk guy hit it? Wow... how drunk must he have been!?

This one would be nice without the text. Please make another version. Thank you.

Magnificent. Very touching too. Though I agree with Krzysztof Jagus. I feel the text intereferes with the otherwise solitary feel of the tree. Would bring lot more depth to its serenity and emotion without the text. Looking forward to another version, minus text. Thanks, Vlad. You're matchless as ever. And wish you a delightful year filled with peace, happiness and prosperity!

Again, fantastic Wallpaper, but I would love it without text. I'm not a huge fan of any type of text on my background. Regardless, it's still amazing!
