Acacia tortillis Umbrella Thorn

The Umbrella Thorn is the quintessential African tree with the classic Acacia shape. It grows primarily in floodplain in northern Botswana and can tolerate mild flooding but if inundated with water for a couple of years without the soil drying out, they will perish. Favoured by elephants and largely absent where there are high densities of elephant.
