A dozen trees 30 meters high lining to this avenue, and most of them are belonging to the Adansonia grandidieri species and which are endemic to Madagascar. Most of the baobabs,which found are  over 800 years old and known as reniala  or mother of the forest by Malagasy language.

arbres n'ont pas grandi isolément dans ce paysage sec et broussailleux mais ont fait partie d'une forêt dense aujourd'hui disparue (il ne reste plus que 10 % de forêts primaires dans le pays). Au fil des années, avec l'augmentation de la population du pays, les forêts ont été abattues pour l'agriculture, laissant seulement les baobabs, que les locaux préservent aussi bien par respect que pour leur valeur en tant que source de nourriture et matériaux de constructions2.
