The tree is called Baobab, it’s about 2000 years old and located in South Africa. This specific tree is called “The Tree of Life”. From the looks of it, I believe we could split it up and everyone here could get 100 bf.

We have a sub species in Australia which we call Boab tree. They grow pretty enormous as well, but I haven’t seen one as big as this.

Thanks for showing.

The “wood” is more like pith – It is too soft to make anything useful, to my knowledge.
