The World’s Most Amazing Trees

The Divi Divi Tree

If the divi divi tree reminds you of a girl fighting to maintain her composure against the elements (and losing), you’d be partially correct. As a result of the often strong trade winds ubiquitous throughout the Caribbean, Central and South American coasts, the divi divi have swapped their stature for survival.

Their contorted countenance serves others well, though; in addition to being an odd bit of flora to observe, the divi divi tree is also a natural compass. Thanks to the trade winds, the divi divi always point southwest.
