Green silkwood, Ceiba speciosa (also known as the silk floss tree) is a semi-deciduous, broad leaf tree native to tropical and sub tropical zones, predominantly in South America. The trunks of younger trees are green and are capable of photosynthesis when no leaves are present (the origin of the green colour) and are often covered with cone shaped thorns. The wood from the younger green silkwood retains it's olive green colouring with a fine, visible grain.
