Their shape from a distance reminds me of the Joshua trees in the California Mojave desert.

The most educational thing that I learned in all this was that all these trees are most probably family because they all have Latin sounding names.
Wonderful tree, the boabab. Looks like a sprig of broccoli in that one photo. Here is the artist Alexis Bester's impression:
