Trees

How much longer…

How much longer…

Matopos Mukwa TreeThis is a picture of a Mukwa tree taken in the Matobo Communal Lands. I wonder how long before it becomes this… Mukwa Bowls I’m not innocent either – I have a lovely mukwa table and the (only)  two doors in our former home were made of mukwa. We managed to recover them and have made two more long tables.

Mukwas are multi trees and as such aren’t cut done lightly.

It’s a pity the Mukiwa’s didn’t follow that rule hey, Terry. The forests that have been cut down this end of the country is …well, criminal and mostly to put down mines. I didnt know Mukwa’s were muti trees???All of ours up the top end of the farm were cut to make those ghastly wooden giraffes.
