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.

On April 29, 1964 the USA issued this 5c stamp (Sc #1245) to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the death of naturalist and conservationist John Muir (1838-1914). Muir is shown walking among the coastal redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens), the tallest living things on planet Earth.

From the USPS, "Muir spent most of his adult life in California, and a large part of his fame rests on his successful crusade to save California's giant redwoods."

Here is the 12c value from British Guiana's 1954 QEII pictorial definitive series. Stamp depicts a greenheart tree (Chlorocardium rodiei) being felled. This species is native to Guyana and Surinam.

From wikipedia, "The wood is extremely hard and strong, so hard that it cannot be worked with standard tools. It is durable in marine conditions, so it is used to build docks and other structures."

On November 28, 1978 Malaysia issued a three-stamp set commemorating the centenary of the rubber industry. The 20c value (SG #185) of the set, shown here, graphically depicts the two methods used for germination of rubber trees. Left side of the stamp shows germination from a seed, and right side of the stamp depicts the "maxi stump" method.

From Natural Rubber: Biology, Cultivation and Technology by M. R. Sethuraj and Ninan T. Mathew, "For planting maxi stumps, shallow pits of 30 cm depth can also be used. In such cases a small cavity is made at the bottom of the planting hole with a crowbar to accommodate the end of the tap root (Rubber Research Institute of Malaysia, 1976)."

This 60 lire value (Sc #742) of Italy is from a set of three stamps issued on May 9, 1958 commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Italian Constitution. An oak stump is shown sprouting new branches, symbolizing a rebirth of the country.

A posting on page 9 of this thread features an older, post-WWII Italian stamp using the same imagery in a different style.

On February 23, 2008 Estonia issued this 5.50 kroon/.35 euro stamp (Sc #590 to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia. Stamp depicts an oak tree. Although not officially recognized as the national tree, the oak has long been specially regarded there. Also, note that the branch and leaf after "EESTI" form a "90".

From wikipedia, "Oak, for example, has long been regarded as a sacred tree. Estonia lies in the northernmost zone of its occurrence...ancient Estonians planted oaks in their holy places. The supreme god was Taara. He was celebrated in sacred oak forests around Tartu."

This March 12, 2015, 55 eurocent stamp (Sc #781) of Estonia shows the coat of arms (adopted in 2000) of the city of Elva (pop. 5700) in the southeast of the country. The two stamps show the color range of the issue.

From elva.com, "Elva is also known as 'pine town'. One such single but powerful tree is the Arbi pine-tree which is a symbol of town and has been portrayed on the coat of arms. The coat of arms symbolizes the fresh air and water resources we have, as well."

A stamp from Mayotte depicting Jackfruit. Scott # 183 from 2002. I know of no other stamps that depict the world's largest fruit. Big enough to kill you if you walk under a tree and one falls on your head.
