Monteverde Trees of the World Ballpoint
Trees are an important part of our ecosystem, providing clean air and essential habitats for all living creatures. There are numerous trees of the World and all of them have an important role in nature. Trees have contributed to our existence since the beginning of humankind and have long signified natural beauty, resilience, balance, longevity, and connection to Earth. From cleaning the water we drink and the air we breathe, trees have also sparked the inspiration for poetry, stories, and art. Monteverde USA® Trees of the World collection pays homage to these mystical and majestic living beings. The Collection features Giant Sequoia, Avenue of the Baobabs, and Dragon Tree.
Giant Sequoia specimens are the most massive trees on Earth. While the present-day distribution of this species is limited to a small area of California, USA; it used to cover larger territories. The giant sequoia is listed as an endangered species by the IUCN, with fewer than 80,000 trees remaining. The Monteverde USA® Giant Sequoia is a substantial in size writing instrument that is inspired by the eternal beauty of these magnificent trees. The design combines high-quality resin in green-striped shades with a beautiful solid walnut ring with silver accents that adorns the cap.
The Avenue of the Baobabs
The Avenue of the Baobabs is a prominent group of baobab trees in the Menabe region of western Madagascar. Travelers from all over the world are drawn to this striking landscape, making it one of the most visited locations in the region and a place for conservation efforts. The Avenue of the Baobabs trees are thousands of years old, remaining as a legacy of the dense tropical forests in Madagascar. Monteverde USA® Avenue of the Baobabs is a substantial in size writing instrument that pays homage to these magnificent trees. The design is inspired by the baobab’s smooth tree trunk and compact crowns. Handmade of high-quality resin with beige and brown swirls playing along the barrel and cap, the pen evokes the simplicity and beauty of the baobab trees. A solid walnut ring with polished chrome accents and clip adorns the cap.
