TREE HUGGER CORNER
Did You Know?
Originating from a small group of islands
in the Indian Ocean knows as the Socotra
Archipelago, the Dragon's Blood tree
(Dracaena Cinnabari) is rare and very
unique. The canopies of mature Dragon
Trees form a distinctive, umbrella-shaped
crown that helps limit evaporation; useful
given the dry, mountain top conditions
that it's known to grow in. It's
thought to have gotten its name from the
red sap found inside the trees. This
sap is highly sought after and has been
used to treat maladies
ranging from bad breath to ulcers.
