From the proper angle, this drooping, sprawling tree looks for all the world like an English Longhorn lying in pas- ture, chewing its cud.   A remarkable tree form!

 

This amazing species contains oil in its wood that the ancient Egyptians ex- tracted for embalming; for perfume and other cosmetics; for a sweet and woody incense fragrance; and for diur- etic, antiseptic and other medicinal purposes.
