The silk floss tree (Ceiba speciosa or in Argentia called the "Palo Borracho") is a species of deciduous tree native to the north-east of Argentina, east of Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and southern Brazil. It is resistant to drought and moderate cold.
A thorny issue. Ceiba tree - "Common name is Kapok, native to Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean, northern South America, and to tropical west Africa"
We have these in Australia too. It's a 'Strangler Fig', that envelopes an existing tree. Eventually, is impossible for the tree to survive and it dies. The original tree will rot completely away and the Strangler Fig is left as a lattice work hollow tube.
