  The Baobab Tree

The African Baobab is a remarkable species. Not only because of its size

and lifespan but also in the special way it grows multiple fused stems. 

 

In the space between these stems bark grows - unique to the baobab. 

Baobabs also have more than 300 uses. The leaves, rich in iron, can be

boiled and eaten like spinach. The seeds can be roasted to make a coffee

substitute or pressed to make oil for cooking or cosmetics.The fruit pulp has

six times more vitamin C than oranges. The roots can be used to make red dye,

and the bark to make ropes and baskets.

Baobabs have medicinal properties, too, and their hollow trunks can be

used to store water. Baobab crowns also provide shade. Baobab trees are not

only useful to humans, but are also an important source of food, water and

shelter for a wide range of animals.

The death of these oldest and largest baobab trees is very sad, but hopefully

the news will motivate us to protect the world’s remaining large baobabs.
