Abstract
There are in South Africa about 500,000acres of wattles which are being grown for the production of tan bark-380,000 acres in Natal and 110,000 acres in the Transvaal. The two species under cultivation for this purpose are Acacia mollissima Willd. (Black Wattle)! and Acacia decurrens Willd. (Green Wattle). The wattle-growing area is mostly confined to the Lower eastern slopes of the Drakensberg range in Natal and the Eastern Transvaal between 2, 000 and 4,000 feet above sea-level and at distances of 10 to 100 miles from the seaboard of the Indian Ocean
