Ceiba - national tree

Among many species of trees that you can encounter in Guatemala, ceiba is most important one. In many Guatemalan towns, you will notice this strong, huge plant, dominating the neighborhood. Some peace treaties and many important decisions were signed under its spreading branches; some particular trees are still important like the biggest ceiba in Guatemala located in a little town of Palin, Escuintla, and ceiba San Francisco in Peten district. Both are several centuries old.
