These trees are among the tallest in the Amazon Rainforest and are named wimba trees (Ceiba samauma). They are a canopy species and hold a special place among many Amazon tribal groups. Potentially fearful of canopy species, tribes like the Matsigenka (a Peruvian indigenous tribe) believe that the trees are home to evil spirits. They believe that passing the trees or cutting them down may cause disease.
