The Cultural value of trees to people of southern Africa

I am currently doing research on ‘the cultural value of trees to people of southern Africa’ and was wondering if readers had any information on a particular tree, a tree species or a group of trees, that have particular importance to the local community.

It could be related to folklore, history, or used in ceremonies (the tree or part of it). The study and documentation has to do with the cultural link and importance of tree and mankind. Please respond if you have any information, or if you know of somebody who may.

Many thanks
