      In botany, a tree is a perennial plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting branches and leaves in most some usages, the definition of a tree may be narrower, including only woody plants with secondary growth, plants that are usable as lumber or plants above a specified height. In wider definitions, the taller palms, tree ferns, bananas, and bamboos are also trees.   Kapok trees (Ceiba pentandra) have buttress roots. These tall trees, which can push through the rainforest canopy to form the emergent layer, rely on their wide roots for stability.

As a strangler fig the seeds germinate high in the canopy of the rainforest on a limb or in the fork of a tree. The small trees sends out aerial roots which head for the ground where they take root and begin the process of strangling the host tree, this can take years or more to completely rot the original tree leaving a lattice work of roots and a hollow trunked fig tree.

      : Australian Rain-forest Trees () by W. D. Francis; G. M. Chippendale and a great selection of similar New, Used and Collectible Books available now at great prices. In the tropical zones where winter frosts do not occur, a wealth of tree species exists. Just as trees in the temperate lands have many uses, so do those in the tropics. Providing shade, lumber, fuel, food or ornamental beauty, the list of tropical trees seems endless.
