Inland Lowveld Trees

The Highveld is an extensive high-lying grassland, covering much of Southern Africa. The Drakensberg Mountains form the boundary in the south and east, while the western and northern boundaries are formed by lower rainfall areas, rather than a physical boundary. About half of the Highveld lies above 1600 meters. (Sappi Tree Spotting; 2002)
