The Baobab Tree
Baobabs are trees that are native only to Madagascar but grown in India and North-Western Australia. They have been known to attain girths of almost 30m, with a diameter of about 9-10m and have life spans up to 2,000 - 6,000 years.
Almost every part of the tree is used in one way or another. The seed kernels are nutritious and eaten, leaves and roots are used for medicinal purposes, its bark is used to make string and rope, and the gum of the tree can be used as glue. The trunk stores water, and it has been estimated that up to 120,000 litres of water may be stored by one living tree. Additionally, Boababs can be used for shelter, as they develop hollow trunks which are large enough to used for living.
