Cojoba arborea, also known as the Guanacaste tree, is a large and fast-growing deciduous tree that is native to Central America. It is valued for its hard wood and is often used for furniture and construction. The tree is also important for its ecological role as a host plant for a variety of insects, birds, and mammals. In addition, the Guanacaste tree is a symbol of Costa Rican culture and identity and is featured on the country's coat of arms. It has a spreading, umbrella-like canopy and produces clusters of yellow flowers that attract bees and other pollinators.
