It is called “quiver tree” because Bushmen use its branches to make quivers. The forest is spontaneous. The tallest quiver trees are two to three centuries old. The forest was declared a national monument of Namibia on June 1, 1995.

The Giant’s Playground is another site of geological interest in the surroundings of the forest and it is also a tourist attraction. This geological site is a vast pile of large dolerite rocks. This tree is also known for looking like its upside down because the “leaves” look like they are the roots of the tree.
