Travel Butlers Trivia 6

Tracey Campbell - September 19, 2010

The Buffalo Thorn tree is also known locally as the Tree of Life.

It is quite distinctive, in that it has a zig zag branch structure with hooks and thorns in pairs together, along the branch.

Locals believe that the branch reflects life, which is never a straight line; the hooks (which face backwards towards the trunk) symbolise the past; and the thorns (which face away from the trunk) represent the future.
