Introducing the Albizia saman, also known as Monkeypod Tree and Raintree, for its fascinating behavior of folding its leaves in rainy weather. With a range extending from Mexico to Peru and Brazil and widely introduced to South and Southeast Asia, as well as the Pacific Islands, this flowering tree in the Fabaceae family boasts a symmetrical crown and can reach a height of 80 ft and diameter of 120 ft. It has numerous local names and notable trees, including the giant saman tree encountered by Alexander von Humboldt in Venezuela. With the ability to absorb 28.5 tons of CO2 annually, this tree is a great addition to any city or road. Bring the magic of the Raintree to your yard or street today!
