Triplaris cumingiana (Long John Tree, Ant Tree)

Triplaris cumingiana - An evergreen tropical tree with a pyramid-shaped crown. This tree can attain a height of 50-70′ (10 - 25 metres) with an oblong canopy that remains narrow.  The bark peels off in patches, giving it a smooth blotchy trunk. The bole, which can be 10 - 30cm in diameter has small buttresses at the base. The tree is harvested from the wild for its timber, which is used locally. It is grown as an ornamental in parks and gardens, being valued especially for its bright red fruits. The terminal branches are pubescent and hollow. The blossoms of the female tree are more deeply colored than the male tree, and produce nutlike seeds attatched to three brilliant red 2″ long propeller like wings, that are wind dispersed, fluttering down like tiny helicopters.  They flower in the dry season from November to early spring. Family: Polygonaceae
