Trees : A quipo tree in Paradise Ranch, Pampanga.

I thought it was some boabab tree, but it was identified by professor George C. Yang of Adamson University as a cuipo tree, Cavanillesia platanifolia, from Central America and northern South America. It is a member of the bombax family.

According to Hawaii50trees blog,, it has a soft wood similar to balsa.
