Some trees and plants I know and others I know I don't have a clue, so google becomes my friend there. :)

Ok ,
In the well known botanical garden in Cape Town there used to be 2 trees planted alongside each other, just after the garden was proclaimed.
One of these trees blew over about 20 years ago.
Many people have sat under the remaining tree's shade in the main garden.
This tree is one of 4 species found in RSA.


???? yellowwood? :hmz:

Quote:
The leaves of the acacia releases a gas, which drifts on to other leaves. In response, these leaves produce toxic levels of the chemical tannin to stop themselves being eaten too. The tree's gas reaches other trees up to 60 metres away. These trees quickly produce high levels of tannin, so protecting themselves from the advancing herds.
