Acacia (lat. Robinia pseudoacacia) or acacia is a whitewashed tree of the legume family (lat. Fabaceae).
It originates from the southeastern part of the US, but spreads to North America, Europe and Asia. In some areas it is considered invasive. It was transferred to Europe in 1601. In private forests of continental Croatia it is one of the most common types of trees. Grows good on sandy soil. Foresters use it in erosion protection plants.
It’s wood is also great for making different objects and for flooring as well. This is what Abraham Lincoln was doing in his youth. Due to flavonoids, acacia trees can survive for 100 years under the ground.
