Here is the 2d value (Sc #198) from Sierra Leone's January 2, 1956 QEII pictorial definitive series. Stamp depicts a large tree and is inscribed "The Cotton Tree, Freetown".

From wikipedia, "The cotton tree (Ceiba pentandra), also known as the kapok tree, is an historic symbol of Freetown, the capital city of Sierra Leone. According to legend, the 'Cotton Tree' gained importance in 1792 when a group of former African American slaves, who had gained their independence by fighting for the British during the American War of Independence, settled the site of modern Freetown. These Black Loyalist settlers, called 'Nova Scotians' because they came from Nova Scotia after leaving the United States and before they decided to go back to Africa or 'Navatians' in Sierra Leone, founded Freetown on March 11th 1792."

The giant cotton tree was there when the settlers landed, and it is still there today.

This 5 escudos stamp (Sc #321) of Mozambique is from the "Landscapes" series of 1948. It depicts copra-harvesting workers at one of the country's coconut palm (Cocos nucifera) farms.

From news.trust.org, "In 2011 Mozambique produced approximately 62,000 tons of copra, which was used for export, oil production, and local consumption. Today, reports estimate that as much as half off the country's coconut trees have been destroyed. The disease (Coconut Lethal Yellowing Disease) which has been found across the world is caused by a virus-like bacterium that is spread by insects."
