On February 18, 1988 the Federal Republic of Germany (BRD) issued this 60 (pf) stamp (Mi #1356) to commemorate the 200th birthday of poet Baron Joseph von Eichendorff (1788-1857). Stamp image shows a detail from a woodcut illustration by graphic artist Ludwig Richter, who was inspired to create the work by Eichendorff's poem Waldeinsamkeit du gruenes Revier (Eng.: Solitude of the Green Woods).

Scott # 667 from Djibouti
Commiphora species, the resin of which produces Myrrh, used as incense for thousands of years. The three wise men brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh - 2 of the 3 most valuable items in the world 2000 years ago were tree resin.
One of my favorites because of its beauty, but it is also one of those stamps that is not rare, but certainly scarce - it took me years to find one.

Here is the 25 (pf) value (Mi #2205) from the DDR's February 23, 1977 set of five "Natural Monuments" stamps. The stamp depicts a tree from the Ivernack Oak Park in Germany's northeastern Mecklenburg-West Pomeranian region.

From dw.com, "The Ivernack Oaks arose during the Middle Ages when the area was used as a wood pasture for livestock. The largest oak in the park is 3.49 meters (11.45 ft) wide and 35.5 meters tall, and is estimated to be up to 1000 years old."
