I am always facinated with the way the fever tree sheds its bark


THE FEVER TREE – DIE KOORSBOOM – Acacia xanthophloea
Large semi-deciduous tree to 30m; along rivers, swamps and pans, in arid bushveld.
General: The common name Fever Tree Acacia is derived from the tree’s association with rivers and swamps which are the breeding places for the malaria-carrying mosquito.
The bark are used as good luck charms, traditionally bark and powdered roots taken as an emetic for malaria.
The bark is also used as a malaria prophylactic.
The Fever tree is an attractive tree and is often used in the landscaping of gardens
