A. grandidieri or Grandidier's baobab is one of the six largest and most famous baobabs species in Madagascar. This impressive and unusual tree is endemic to the island of Madagascar which has a large cylinder rod, three meters in diameter, and is covered with a soft reddish-gray bark.

At certain times of the year the flat crowns above have bluish green palm leaves with dark brown flower buds or spectacular flowers with white petals. The large dried fruits of baobab contain shaped seeds in the pulp that can be consumed. This species produces ripe fruit in November and December.

Lemurs are the only living animals in Madagascar that are capable of acting as seed dispersers, but the spread of seeds by lemurs has never been documented. Some species have been extinct since human colonization on the island at 1,500 to 2,000 years ago.

The Baobab tree grows up to 800 years and is known locally as the renala or "forest mother" as a heritage of the ever growing tropical forest in Madagascar. The trees originally stood in dense forest which for years the forest was cleared for agriculture leaving only the baobab as a source of food and building materials.

The Avenue of the Baobabs is not a national park, but the locals receive little income from tourism. Conservation International in collaboration with Fanamby is a Malagasy NGO has launched ecotourism projects aimed at regional conservation and economic improvement for local communities.
