Acacia senegal Gum Used in Food, Medicine, and Printmaking
As an indigenous African tree species, Acacia senegal is a versatile tree that can withstand extreme climactic conditions and fully adapt to environmental changes, much like the mukau tree. However, this species produces a special substance known as gum arabic, which is useful in many commercial applications. Better Globe Forestry is currently growing Acacia senegal on trial plantations in Kenya, and hopes to establish a basis for raw material and commercialize the species five years from now. The possibilities for Acacia senegal are endless, and it is true that even one tree can make a world of difference.
Better Globe Media produces media to support Better Globe Forestry's work in Africa. We welcome everyone who has visited their plantations and seen and experienced their projects to share their pictures and videos with us.
