Joshua Trees

Joshua Trees are amazing. They grow only in the Mojave Desert and can live up to 700 years too. This tree has adapted itself perfectly to the wide variations of Mojave Desert weather and temperatures here which can range from freezing all the way to well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Some of the Joshua’s around Las Vegas have been damaged by the wild donkeys that roam the Red Rock Canyon and Red Rock Escarpment areas. The donkeys will slide themselves close to the trunk so they can eat the dead matter on it as far as I know. In any case, they eat the trees, bad donkeys!

  1. The donkeys eat the dead matter? Good Donkeys then because they help the trees stay healthy.

  3. I don’t know why but these Joshua Trees seem to have their personalities that come in the shape they grow. Or is my imagination going wild? MZ
