Don't get near the Sandbox Tree...

Marketing & Branding Guru


• Grows 90 to 130 feet tall in its native environment.

• Sandbox tree is native primarily to tropical parts of South America   and the Amazonian Rainforest.

• The tree sap is said to cause an angry red rash, and it can blind you    if it gets in your eyes. It has been used to make poison darts.

• Sandbox tree fruit looks like little pumpkins.

• Once they dry into seed capsules, they become ticking time bombs.

• When fully mature, they explode with a loud bang and fling their   hard, flattened seeds at speeds of up to 150 miles per hour and   distances of over 60 feet.
