My African Christmas Tree

The Baobab tree is native to Africa (and India) , I used one for a Christmas tree this year! (see above image and gallery too) I Googled Baobab and found out that it’s leafless, exceeded in trunk diameter only by the sequoia tree. The trunks of living baobabs are hollowed out for dwellings; rope and cloth are made from the bark and condiments and medicines from the leaves; the gourdlike fruit (monkey bread) is eaten. Bloody amazing!
