Aloe dichotoma is a tall, branching species of the Aloe family, indigenous to Southern Africa, specifically in the Northern Cape region of South Africa, and parts of Southern Namibia.
It is also called the “Quiver tree” (Its English name “Quiver Tree” comes from the fact that the indigenous people used the hollow bark of the plant as a Quiver for their arrows) and is actually a 'true' tree, unlike most of the Aloes which are stemless, herbaceous plants.
In its natural environment, it can grow to between 3 & 9 meters tall, and can live for around 80 years. The trunk has a smooth, scaled bark and has a dichotomic arrangement of the branches.
Branches are covered of a thin powder, which is important to protect the plant from the intense effects of the Sun.
