Which Tree Is Large Enough for People To Live In?

The unusual baobab trees of Africa have trunks so wide, often approaching 35 feet in diameter that entire native families live in them.

These trees are second in size only to the giant sequoias of California, but they have such a soft pulp inside their trunk that they can easily be hollowed out and used as a home.

One baobab is so wide that its hollowed-out trunk is used as a garage for a bus!
