Mayflower Tree, Tabebuia Rosea
Most forests in the tropics are semi-deciduous and some trees are deciduous. The leaves on this one, shed around February and again around April/May. This tree is dotted with many names. San Juan in Spanish. Joocab in Maya. Matilihuate in Central America. Pink Pol in the Caribbean. Mayflower Tree and its scientific name is the Tabebuia Rosea. This particular tree is currently located on Ms. Ruby Longsworth's property at the entrance to Corozal Town. We hope this tree can be saved from the axe. Thank you Ms. Ruby for allowing us to take this photo. It is a beautiful tree.
