Boab Tree, Kununurra KN309Ps

by Christian Fletcher

Boabs are fat-trunked trees that are native only to Madagascar and North-Western Australia. They have been known to attain girths of almost 30m, with a diameter of about 9-10m. It is thought that boabs live up to 2,000 - 6,000 years. In the North Australian 'Wet Season', the boab has a dense coverage of bright green leaves. In the 'Dry' season (winter) the Boab drops all its leaves, and looks a like a tree that has been planted with its roots in the air.
