Acacia flower

Acacia is a genus of trees and shrubs that belong to the family Fabaceae. With over 1,000 species distributed worldwide, acacias are known for their impressive adaptations to diverse environments. These trees can be found in arid deserts, wetlands, and tropical forests.

Acacias are characterized by their compound leaves, small fragrant flowers, and their ability to form symbiotic relationships with ants. Some species of acacias have extensive root systems that can reach depths of up to 40 meters, which help the tree access water and nutrients in dry soils and can help stabilize soil and prevent erosion.
