Bois Dentelle

(Images via trees-plants)

This beautiful, delicate tree is exceedingly rare: there are only twobois dentelle trees that remain in existence. The pair is located in the cloud forest of Mauritius. Though it has no commercial value, it is near extinction because the cloud forest habitat has been severely damaged by alien invasive species. The bois dentelle produces beautiful sprays of delicate hanging white flowers.
