I live in the Florida Keys and have a huge Sausage Tree. It's fun when people passing/walking by stop to admire it. Some even take pictures, and if I'm outside, usually strike up a conversation about it.
I shouldn't say I have this tree, even though we've lived here for decades, the tree was here before us and will be here for a long time after we're gone. There is also a beautiful specimen at the Ford/Edison homes in Ft Meyers, Fl.
