The Saxaul is an interesting and valuable addition to any desert ecosystem.

With a deep root system that can access water sources other plants can't reach, the Saxaul helps keep the desert alive. It also has characteristic twisted branches that make it a recognizable sight in the landscape.

Best of all, the wood from this resilient plant is highly prized for its durability and resistance to decay,

Anyone exploring the deserts of the world should take note of this unique species and learn more about its role in preserving these delicate ecosystems.
