This is a cotton tree. This tree has a straight tall trunk, and it produces a capsule like which, when mature, contains white fibers like cotton. Our old place had this tree at the back of our house. My mother used the cotton fiber for pillows. I was so quick to pick up on the ground if I saw this capsule like. There was only one tree at the back, so for one big pillow, it took for my mother a couple of months before it is completely full of cotton fibers.
|The capsule like when it is still young. When matured, the color is brown, and it will drop on the ground.|
