The Knobthorn - Senegalia nigrescens - is a deciduous African tree that grows to a height of approximately 18 metres. The Knobthorn is drought resistant but not resistant to frost. Giraffes are known to browse on the flowers and leaves of the Knobthorn.
The wood has a coarse and even texture with a straight, irregular or interlocked grain. It should always be turned using very sharp tools. Knobthorn was used in the past for wagon building as it is a strong tough wood.
