Not really a tall tree (up to 20 m.), Baobab has a trunk that can grow larger than 10 meters! It grows single in open spaces because it’s a too weak competitor for forests, due to it’s very slow growth. It is mostly found in hot dry areas, but this must not deceive: Baobabs thrive if planted in rainy areas, as long as the soil is well drained. Baobab is one of the longest living trees, the biggest exemplars being 2000 years old. It can survive total cuts and fires.
