What Is A Manzanita Tree?
A real manzanita tree is a large shrub that grows in some western areas of North America. It is well known for its smooth bark and branches that grow to be quite long, developing interesting twisted designs. The gnarled and twisty branches of manzanita trees have been in use for a long time as a decoration choice for weddings or other special event, as well as a variety of other purposes. They became so popular, in fact, that manzanita trees began to be endangered. So, today, many people use imitation manzanita trees made out of plastic. These are just as lovely and unique as the real thing, and you will not have to worry about endangering live trees.
