Euphorbia tirucalli (commonly known as aveloz, Indian tree spurge, naked lady, pencil tree, pencil cactus, milk bush) is a tree that grows in semi-arid tropical climates.
It has a wide distribution in Africa, being prominently present in northeastern, central and southern Africa.
It may also be native in other parts of the continent as well as some surrounding islands and the Arabian peninsula and has been introduced to many other tropical regions.
Its status in India is uncertain.It grows in dry areas, and is often used to feed cattle or as hedging.
It is well known in Sri Lanka where it is called Kalli in Tamil
Euphorbia tirucalli is a hydrocarbon plant that produces a poisonous latex which can, with little effort, be converted to the equivalent of gasoline.
This led chemist Melvin Calvin to propose the exploitation of E. tirucalli for producing oil.
This usage is particularly appealing because of the ability of E. tirucalli to grow on land that is not suitable for most other crops.
