Anyone knows the name?  What type of wood?
I am not going to ask who has a saw to be able to make lumber out of this one!!!

I'm guessing some sort of Baobab?

You don't need to saw them. They are often hollow, so if you want to make a house, just cut a door and some windows in the trunk and move in ;)

The wood is modified for water storage and useless as lumber. ;D
