  Sclerocarya birrea (morula) is a common and wide spread indigenous fruit-bearing tree species throughout much of sub-Saharan Africa. It is widely used by rural populations in most countries wherever it grows. In Botswana the species is protected and preserved by local people in areas of its natural occurrence. Local people in the northern part of Botswana also plant the tree in their homesteads. It is a multipurpose tree whose fruits are eaten fresh or fermented to make a beer, the kernels are eaten or the oil extracted. The leaves are browsed by livestock and have medicinal uses as does the bark. The wood is used to make a variety of implements. The kernel is rich in protein and minerals. The morula fruit produce juice, which has high vitamin C than orange juice. The paper reviews Sclerocarya birrea, which is an important multipurpose tree of social and economic value in Botswana and other African countries where it grows.

  Laboratory trials were carried out to evaluate the effects of concentrated sulphuric acid (98%), mechanical scarification, hot water, cold water and dry heat on the germination capacity of five-years-old Colophospermum mopane seeds. The results showed that treating five-years-old C. mopane seeds with concentrated sulphuric acid (98%), mechanical scarification, cold water and dry heat had no effect on the germination capacity of mopane seeds. Simmering hot water significantly decreased germination capacity. The results showed that Colophospermum mopane seeds stored for five years still attain germination percentage above seventy. It is concluded that C. mopane in Botswana have no hard seed coat or impervious seed coat and physiological dormancy as an adaptation to arid and desert conditions.

  This study reviews the characteristics and economic value of Colophospermum mopane a multipurpose indigenous tree growing in many countries of southern Africa. In Botswana the tree is confined to the north-eastern parts of the country and provide goods (fire wood, timber and poles) and services (soil and water, environmental and biodiversity conservation). The tree is a host to mopane worm (Imbrasia belina) that feeds on its leaves and the worm is a famous protein rich human food and economical resource in southern Africa.

  Azanza garkeana (morojwa) is a valuable edible indigenous fruit tree species confined to east and southern Africa. Because of its multiple use the species is selected and retained by farmers in Botswana when they clear the woodland for crops and building house. It is one of the indigenous fruit tree species that is semi-domesticated by local people in Botswana. The species is an important indigenous source of food in Botswana. Besides proving people with fruits, the tree also provides goods (timber, firewood, fodder etc.) and services (soil conservation, shade etc.). The species is an important source of essential minerals particularly P, Ca, Mg and Na. This paper reviews Azanza garckeana as an important multipurpose indigenous fruit tree with high potential social and economic value in Botswana.
