Kapok

The kapok is a majestic tropical tree that can grow to towering heights, dwarfing other trees in its native rainforests. The branches of the kapok grow in horizontal tiers and spread widely to create a crown with an open umbrella shape. Their straight trunks are cylindrical, buttressed, smooth, and gray in color, but their most notable feature are their many large, protruding spines. Kapoks are drought deciduous -- they shed most or all of their long, palmate leaves during the tropical dry season.

Kapok wood is a pinkish white to ashy brown in color, with a straight grain.
