This tree is utilised by man as amongst other uses it contains an oil which provides a good light when burned .

The green fruit yields a colourless oil that burns well and gives a bright light and a poison which is lethal to certain fish , tadpoles, snails , but is harmless to people .

This tree is known as "the bandage of the bush." It also has excelent wood for a braai, makes the most beautiful flower and is hated by many people.

Which tree and why is it called "the bandage of the bush"?

Is it the dressing used or the bandage that covers the dressing ? :hmz:

Agapanthus is used as a bandage over a dressing.

:lol: A small tree / bush.

Yes, it is quite common in the lowveld. It is also well known. And not always popular!

A guess. The Sickle Bush has bark that could be made into twine or with imagination, a bandage could be made with the fibre.
