Such an ancient tree is s real blessing for creatures great and small, and it is a pleasure to see. The world needs trees more than ever everywhere

Thank you for providing such detailed information about this amazing, lonely tree. It is a shame that it’s not been able to reproduce due to the suspected reasons listed by you, but perhaps one day you will find another healthy tree growing strong.

Fascinating Tayla, really loved all the info on the Shepherds Tree. 🙏🏻💗I recall our trip to Madagascar where we saw the last 3 remaining Baobab trees of a particular type in the world. The bird that used to pollinate them no long exists ..sadly I cannot recall its name…but perhaps this may be the case here, where whatever pollinates these trees are in short supply now

Thank you Cally. Yes that could posssible be the case here. What a wonderful trip that must have been but sad that there are so few left
