Camelthorn (Kameeldoring) trees scatter the plains of the Kalahari. The African wildlife use these trees for a lookout, shade and resting spot. When the trees die, they fall over and can be hazardous to animals. At this point is when it's harvested using sustainable farming methods. Camelthorn has an extremely low moisture content of around 1-2% due to it baking in the African sun, and is probably the lowest moisture content of any wood in the world.
The Camelthorn pods are highly nutritious and are eaten during the dry season by livestock and large native herbivores such as the elephant, black rhino, gemsbok, eland, greater kudu, and of course, giraffe. Seeds are dispersed through animal droppings and may lay dormant for up to 50 years without losing their viability.
