4000 Year Old Boab tree
I tried to post the tree I just saw during a road trip on the 'Tree Thread' but was ignored.

Here is a Boab, it is really old (4000 years) and was once used as a prison.

What do you think of it?

That is amazing! Is it still alive? Imagine what was growing around it when it first sprouted....so incredible for it to have survived so long.

It is, just, it produces boab nuts, the size of a man's fist every year. They'll live and live if they don't burn.

Nice one on your imagery of what it has seen!

HEHE..I just posted that video on the following thread. :)

Thread: dont ever tell me to watch a tree video again (Page 6)


ETA...I have always been interested in the Boab tree. Considered growing some in a sort of bonsai tree fashion as my climate would probably not work for those trees.
Known as the upside down trees..Fascinating.

They are! And do you know the 7 or 8 species of Boab tree in the world live in Africa, the Australian one was washed ashore as a nut millions ago but the prevailing current from those lands...

You can see it's squeezed like you make a pile of clay and push on it.

This is evidence the gravity of earth suddenly increased in the past.

With the increasing of the gravity all life that was too big died.

Indeed, the young boabs have a much straighter trunk.

Somewhere in the life of this 4000 years old boab earth's gravity increased. You can also see a clove in the trunk. this is exactly what would happen when you would squeeze a trunk.

Re: 4000 Year Old Boab tree
On a funny side in context of trees I have very funny story from Poland.

There was or maybe still is a tree which according to catholic church had some virgin Mary appariton emanating from branchess and people treat that tree as a holly tree and make pilgrimages to the tree to pray for health etc.

But get this some people collected bark from tree as a amulets and some nut ate piece of bark and his teeth started to heal and now thosuand people almost killed that huge tree so goverment had to erect huge barrier to keep idiots from completelly killing that tree but even barrier can keep imbeciles catholics.

Sorry for my bad english.
