The tree is hand-carved with a swirling tapestry of over 325 animal images to create a staggering spectacle that is truly a sight to behold!
"This centerpiece of Animal Kingdom makes a beautiful backdrop for Frog Family photos. The paths around the Tree of Life, the Discover Islands Trails, give great views of the 325 animals carved into the bark. Very impressive!"
Location - Discovery Island
This tree is one of the few artificial trees among over 4 million living plants at Disney's Animal Kingdom®. For a great picture of the Tree of Life, stop on the bridge between the Oasis and Discovery Island®.
Ten artists and three Imagineers worked full-time for 18 months to create the 325 animal carvings on The Tree of Life. If you have binoculars handy, they are useful in helping spot all the animals carved into the Tree of Life. The Tree of Life is topped with more than 103,000 translucent, five-shades-of-green leaves that were individually placed and actually blow in the wind.
