Bombacaceae, Pachira quinata, Cedro espino

March 9, 2009

I’m pretty sure these are P. quinata trees, the photo was taken on a beach off the Caribbean coast of Panama. This is a fairly common tree in the area, its wood highly prized for its durability, widely used to make chairs, doors and other such craft.
