Adansonia digitata, the African Baobab Tree. There are five in total at Young Circle Park (now "The Arts Park"). They may have been planted in the 1930s by the Wray family, founders of Flamingo Gardens, who lived in Hollywood on the 1500 block of Monroe St. A similarly-sized tree lives at the corner of US1 and Griffin Rd. next to the Fort Lauderdale Airport, and it dates from around 1900. The trees can live over 1,000 in their native range, but lifespan in Florida is unknown.
