The quiver tree or Aloe dichotoma is probably the best known aloe found in South Africa and Namibia. This species is a conspicuous component of the arid parts generally known as Namaqualand and Bushmanland. It occurs in rocky areas, from near Nieuwoudtville northwards into Namibia and eastwards to Upington and Kenhardt.A common phenomenon in the branches of these trees is the huge communal nest of weavers that live and breed by the thousands.
