Acacia Trees of the U.A.E.

The Fujairah Tree

The Fujairah Tree. Rul Dhadna. This was our favourite picnic spot that we drove to 165 km away from Sharjah, where we lived, via Dhaid, Masafi and Fujairah City. This scenic place was close to the coastal road, and very near to the sea.

The acacia tree is a primary source of gum arabic. Extensive browsing by camels prune the under-side of the branches of acacia trees giving them the distinct flat lower appearance. It continues to make up for this by further extending its thorny branches to collect moisture and sunlight with the smallest leaves and survives in arid climatic conditions.
