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.

Great! Would be even nicer without text... :)

Marcus 4 January 2008
I love it! You are so creative.

Andrew Breakspear 4 January 2008
The only tree in 400km and a drunk guy hit it? Wow... how drunk must he have been!?

Andreas Jensen Gjellesvik 4 January 2008
I love these beautiful, calm wallpapers!

Christina 5 January 2008
Awesome! Love your wallpapers, Vlad!

Krzysztof Jagus 5 January 2008
This one would be nice without the text. Please make another version. Thank you.

Joe 5 January 2008
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!

alex 5 January 2008
um. is there a point? if there is, I sure don't get it...

Lyon Lim 5 January 2008
Simply stunning! Absolutely beautiful!

Emma 5 January 2008

I think that this is up there with what I think is your best. It's a great subject and a great wallpaper........... Having both versions is good. I kinda like the text so you can know and fell what it is.............. Great wallpaper Thanks

I like the writing, it gives me info on the poor tree. I have trouble understanding how a person runs into the only tree within 400 km, no matter how drunk they are!?!, same as Me

like all ...

Cynthia 4 January 2008
Love it! Thanks!

Rick Beckman 4 January 2008
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.

LucasDT 4 January 2008
Moving... really touching...

Life Seeker 4 January 2008
This is amazing!

Safar Vedadi-Amin 5 January 2008
Ahhhh, It's a great Wallpaper. THX

Dusik (from Ukraine) 5 January 2008
you the Best !!!

Jaideep 5 January 2008
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!

Peter Brennan 5 January 2008
You just keep doing this amazing work

RoxAnne Johnson 5 January 2008
Love it! Sometime I feel like a isolated tree myself...Thank you for the wall paper and the story of the Tenere.

Anne O\'Brien 5 January 2008
Beautiful and sad. The text doesn't look bad--you can't please everybody. Keep up the good work, Vlad. Your wallpapers are simply stunning!

Me 7 January 2008
Very cool. Along with looking great, it's an awesome conversation starter. I don't mind the text because I know I'll eventually forget what it is and will then be able to look it up. I'm just trying to figure out how a person runs into the only tree within 400 km, no matter how drunk they are!?!

birol 8 January 2008
relaxing... nice job as usual.

Nostalgic and moving... I have it as my desktop, reminds me that life is fragile.

Bibaniu 26 February 2008
This story is so sad. This tree must be so lonely. And loneliness is the most painful feeling in the world :(

adam 16 November 2008
love it!

Alien 16 May 2013
Thanks for good job! As for me, I would never know about the Tenere Tree, if this picture had had no text.
