[1945900] In the last decade, Africa's oldest and largest baobab trees are suddenly dying. Some argue that the death of trees 1,100 to 2,500 years old in the size of a bus could be experts climate change. It is stated in the survey that nine of the oldest 13 trees died, or that their oldest branches and roots did not show signs of life. Experts share the fact that the death of thousands of years old trees is unprecedented, and that it is a shocking and dramatic experience for us to make this happen in our time. The exact cause of the deaths of trees is unclear, with researchers from Romania, South Africa and the USA arguing that one of the reasons is climate and temperature change, especially in southern Africa. Between 2005 and 2017, the same experts categorized the oldest and largest baobab trees in Africa. Experts say that the death of trees took place in Zimbabwe, Namibia, South Africa, Botswana and Zambia over the 12-year period.   The baobab tree, the largest and longest living tree that blooms naturally grows in large grasslands of Africa, but it can also grow in tropical regions outside the continent. The tree, which stands out with its strange appearance, seems as though its roots stretch into the sky. The baobab tree, which can live up to 3 thousand years old, is storing water in its giant body and feeds both animals and people with its fruit. This fruit, which is eaten by boiling, is also used in traditional medicines. The bark of the tree can be used for making rope, basket, and even fabric.

Experts note that as the tree continues to explore how it has grown so much, it has actually been noted that the tree has more than one main root and that it is very difficult to kill this tree. Against an envelope given to the outer surface of the tree, the tree can reshape itself and continue its life.

Experts are certain that 4 trees have died precisely once, so the multiple main roots of these trees are not exactly signs of life. The oldest of these dead trees is a 2500-year-old tree in Zimbabwe, the largest being a 30-meter-long tree with a 35-meter girdle and a Holboom name
