This amazing Baobab tree is one of two mature trees growing in Barbados. With a girth of nearly 45 feet, it is thought to be about 250 years old. I confess that I spent over an hour Photoshopping all of the graffiti that had been carved into the bark over the years. This tree is magnificent and should be treated with more respect. I know that the carvings are permanent but I thought to do my part making sure they not get any more exposure to the public. The recently constructed office building seen here was aptly named "Baobab Tower". This tree is growing in the Warrens area but the other one located in Queens Park (Bridgetown) is even larger and may well be over a thousand years old!
