Here is Guatemala's 1963 4c airmail stamp (Sc #C273) depicting a Ceiba, or kapok tree (Ceiba pentandra) which in 1955 had been declared the country's national tree.

From wikipedia, "The Ceiba, or ya'axche' (in the Mopan Mayan language), symbolized to the Mayan civilization an 'axis mundi' which connects the planes of the underworld (Xibalba) and the sky with that of the terrestrial world."

The 50 centavos value (Sc #581) from El Salvador's 1938-9 pictorial definitive series shows a maquilishuat tree in bloom.

From wikipedia, "Tabebuia rosa, also called pink poui, and rosy trumpet tree is a neotropical tree that grows up to 30 m (98 ft) and can reach a diameter at breast height of up to 100 cm (3 ft). It is the national tree of El Salvador, where it is called Maquilishuat."

On August 1, 1995 Japan issued this 50 yen stamp (Sc #Z166) depicting a line of Japanese elm trees (Zelkova serrata), also known as keyakis or Zelkovas for Miyagi prefecture.

Photograph from wikipedia shows Noma Keyaki. They say, "Noma Keyaki, a 1000-year old Zelkova in Nose near Osaka in Japan, 25 meters tall, 11.95 meter trunk circumference; second-largest known specimen."
