Aloe dichotoma (Quiver Tree)

Aloe dichotoma (Quiver Tree) in Namaqualand. Why are they called Quiver Trees?

Quiver Tree Forest, Keetmanshoop, Namibia

Quiver tree (Aloe dichotoma) is not really a tree, rather a plant of the genus aloe, as evident from its scientific name, and one of the few species of aloe that reaches tree proportions — it can grow 7 to 9 meters high. Quiver Tree Forest is not really a forest despite having some 250 samples growing in a rather small and confined area. The tree which is not a tree and the forest which is not a forest is a magical and true photographic playground. Technical Details: Nikon D800E…

It is located about 14 km north-east of Keetmanshoop, on the road to Ko�s, on the Gariganus farm. It comprises about 250 specimens of Aloe dichotoma, a species of aloe that is also locally known as "quiver tree" (Afrikaans: kokerboom) because bushmen traditionally used its branches to make quivers. The forest is spontaneous; the tallest quiver trees are two to three centuries old. The…
