Inspiring Vision: Baobab Trees
This photo from Madagascar (one of my bucket list destinations) shows some of the most unusual and fascinating trees on the planet. Baobab trees, sometimes referred to as "upside-down" trees, are not fast growers, taking up to 15 to 20 years to bear fruit. They are some of the world's oldest trees, some dating back to 2,000 years or more, and now due to climate change, they appear to be dying. It turns out that rainfall patterns in Africa, where all baobab trees can be found, have completely changed due to global warming.
Some things in life look so strong and sturdy on the outside, but they are still vulnerable to their environment. This is true for all living things, not just ancient trees!
