Baobab Trees, Tanzania

“Baobab trees frame a serene view of night skies in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania. Some species of baobab trees can live for a thousand years—potentially reaching a stunning height of 80 feet (25 meters) and a diameter of 40 feet (12 meters).” © 2010 National Geographic Society.

While we don’t grow any Baobabs in Berkeley, we do grow their relatives, the Bombax and the Chorisia (Kapok), in the Bombacoideae family.
