171 Biblical Trees and Plants

I am in hopes this will be interesting for you to see. I really enjoyed putting this together, finding our what kinds of trees and plants was in the Bible days and Jesus’ day that was really exciting. So, I thought I would create a web page with the ones I have found for you to see. Some I am unable to locate graphics for, and more information, but if you can find it please let me know I would love to put it on the ones which has no graphic or information like Bible Verses, etc. There are way more than listed here, but this is a start for you to be intrigued!

NOTE: Word Press from Html 5 has it’s issues, in HTML5 you hide the table borders they are hidden, with WordPress it’s impossible! I am sorry if the table borders are seen, I tries for about 3 hours working with them here in word press and it’s impossible task!
