Dragon Tree on Somali Coast # 287.
Genus Dracaena, with different species in the Arabian Peninsula and the Canary Islands.
Also known as Dragon's Blood Tree because of the crimson resin it produces.
Used since ancient time for dyes, as medicine, and in ritual magic and alchemy. (how could you not use it for ritual magic with a name and appearance like that?!)
Also used from the 18th century until present time as a stain for violins, and currently popular as incense in it's powder form.

This October 3, 1979 35c value of New Zealand is from the 1979 Christmas set of three. Stamp depicts a pohutukawa, also known as a N.Z. Christmas, or iron tree. The pohutukawa (Metrosideros excelsa) is a coastal evergreen tree in the myrtle family.

From nzhistory.gov.nz, "The pohutukawa tree with its crimson flower has become an established part of New Zealand Christmas tradition. This iconic Kiwi Christmas tree, which often features on greeting cards and in poems and songs, has become important symbol for New Zealanders at home and abroad."

Here is the 60c value (Sc #450) from Mauritius's 1978 Historical Events and Maps pictorial definitive series. Stamp shows Pierre Poivre and a nutmeg tree (Myristica fragrans).

From wikipedia, "Pierre Poivre (1719-1786) was an 18th century horticulturist and botanist...On northern Isle de France - Mauritius, he is renowned for the establishment of Botanical Garden of Pamplemousse with specimens of trees and plants imported from tropical habitats worldwide...He is also remembered for introducing spice plants to Mauritius and Reunion, such as clove and nutmeg, commodities which at the time were controlled by the Dutch, who had a virtual monopoly on them in the Dutch East Indies."

Note that Poivre's right hand is missing. That is the result of a hit taken from a British cannonball.

Finland issued this 1st class domestic rate stamp on September 13, 2010 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Torronsuo National Park. The Park is a large (25.5 sq km / 9.85 sq mi) raised bog standing on a thick layer of peat. Stamp depicts a Baltic, European red, or Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris).

From wikipedia, "The species is mainly found on poorer, sandy soils, rocky outcrops, peat bogs or close to the forest limit. On fertile sites, the pine is out-competed by other tree species".
