An imposing tree, Adansonia Digitata can reach 25 metres in height, and the trunks can exceed 20 metres in circumference. The wood is light and the giant trunks are often hollowed for a variety of uses. Hollowed baobabs have been used as stables, stores, bus shelters, water reservoirs and, in Australia, a bar.

Commonly referred to as the ‘Tree of Life’, a use for almost every part of the tree has been recorded. Fibres are woven into ropes, basket nets and fishing lines; in East Africa the roots make a red dye; the hard fruit shells are also used as pots for food. The leaves, especially when young, are used in a similar way to spinach, or can be dried, powdered and used in soups. However, the pulp of the baobab fruit is the most important resource.
