Scientific Name: Quararibea asterolepis Family: Bombacaceae Tall: 30 meter approximate
«They are members of the cottonwood family. Saplings of these trees now are being grown at the University of Florida to find out if they retain their squareness in a different environment. It is believed, however, that the shape is probably due to some unknown but purely local condition. That the cause is deepseated is indicated by the fact that the tree rings, each representing a year’s growth, also are square.»
