They regenerate all of the gifts they gave man. The bark etc regrows. They don't kill it. It is a very robust plant.

I'd like to know what is in the ground feeding those awesome trees. That has to be some super fertilizer.

Just the amount of water to grow so big?

Think for yourself

Water has no nutritional value. It is what is in the water that the plant takes up which makes it healthy.

Beautiful vid from your link, made me feel so happy!



I would love to grow some but I'm zone 5 and these are zones 10-12 ! The Tree of Life

The baobab has many useful properties, which explains why it is widely known as the Tree of Life. It behaves like a giant succulent and up to 80% of the trunk is water. San bushmen used to rely on the trees as a valuable source of water when the rains failed and the rivers dried. A single tree can hold up to 4,500 liters (1,189 gallons), while the hollow center of an old tree can also provide valuable shelter.

The bark and flesh are soft, fibrous and fire-resistant and can be used to weave rope and cloth. Baobab products are also used to make soap, rubber and glue; while the bark and leaves are used in traditional medicine. The baobab is a life-giver for African wildlife, too, often creating its very own ecosystem. It provides food and shelter for a myriad of species, from the tiniest insect to the mighty African elephant.

6000 years old?  Wikipedia has a list of the world's confirmed oldest trees starting with a 5066 yo Bristlecone Pine. Baobabs don't even make the list. Get your facts right before posting. There is enough misleading rubbish on the internet already.

Wow, really? Newsflash just for you, Wiki is neither a consistently reliable nor authoritative source.
There, you learned something. You're welcome.

T1 - I remember learning about baobabs in elementary school. Awe inspiring to both young
minds and older ones.

The Bristlecone Pine is the oldest living tree. This info can be found in many places besides Wikipedia. There you learned something, you are welcome. A colony of Quaking Aspens in Utah nicknamed Pando, is the oldest known clonal tree, at an age of 80,000 years.

You are an asshole. That is a straight fact.
Another fact is never rely on Wikipedia for a fact.

Oh one more thing you intelligent snob just so you know-anyone can go in and edit Wikipedia.

What a beautiful tree. I believe it has a soul. I have always believed that for every disease on earth- God has given us a cure in nature.

That's the whole problem. The entire world lives in the myth that all of the biggest, best and oldest things in the world come everywhere but the continent of Africa. LOL
