Thick wood

Boabab tree in the middle of nowhere near the coast of the Indian Ocean.

The baobab tree is characterised by a relatively short, extremely thick trunk. In South Africa, for example, there is a baobab tree in the Letaba district that has a trunk diameter of 10.64 metres at a height of 19 metres. It is one of the best known and most characteristic trees of tropical Africa. | Oman
