Gallinazo trees north of quepos Flowering Gallinazo (Schizolobium parahyba) trees between Parrita and Jaco, Costa Rican Pacific coast. It is a pioneer species used for reforestation but the wood is soft and used for pulp, boxes, pallets. Beautiful flowers. Scarlet Macaws like to nest in them because they can find or make a cavity in the wood.
