South African Indigenous Trees for Arbor Week 2015

I am constantly reminded of how lucky we are to live in this amazing country we call South Africa.  It is so rich in biodiversity and promise.

The indigenous trees, too, reflect this richness, and evoke the spirit of the place that their species originated from. For instance, when I look at the Acacia species, they are the quintessential African Savannah trees.

South Africa has some 1700 indigenous tree species, and each year 2 species are chosen as the tree of the year. This Arbor Week we tell you a bit more about the Trees of the Year for 2015.

They are the Forest Bushwillow (Combretum kraussii) and the Parsley Tree (Heteromorpha arborescens).
