Rooikrans is a tree originally from Australia brought to Cape Town as an ornamental tree in the 1800’s and later used for dune stabilisation on the Cape Flats. It is a tree reaching 5m with woody stems, tapered narrow supple green leaves, yellow flowers and 10cm long curved seed pods. The seeds are dispersed by birds (long distance) and ants (short distance) and are able to lie dormant in sand for 40 years. 

Rooikrans is a problem because it threatens biodiversity, increases the severity of fire, and reduces water run-off. The detrimental effects on nature are that it uses massive amounts of water, creates a canopy impenetrable by sunlight over natural vegetation leading to the death of the natural vegetation. It is rated as one of the best wood types for a braai & fire pit with a good flame and coals.
