The Ipê tree flowers with brilliant pink, yellow or white flowers every September. It is a valuable timber for its wood, known for its durability, strength and its natural resistance to decay. Ipê growing in the Amazon has a low population density, with an average of one tree per 10 hectares. This means that large areas of forest need to be opened up to access these valuable trees.Locations:Amazon-Brazil-Pará-South AmericaDate:22 Sep, 2013Credit:© Daniel Beltrá / GreenpeaceMaximum size:7360px X 4912pxKeywords:Aerial view-Day-Forests (campaign title)-KWCI (GPI)-Outdoors-Palm trees-Trees-Tropical rainforests-YellowShoot:Pará State Aerial DocumentationAerial photographs taken on several flights to document deforestation and forest beauty throughout the northern area of Pará State, Brazil.
