Semi-deciduous tree Dipteryx odorata

A semi-deciduous tree is a type of tree that has a variable pattern of leaf shedding. Depending on the climate and environmental conditions, a semi-deciduous tree may retain some or all of its leaves throughout the year, or it may lose them for a brief period before new growth emerges. Semi-deciduous trees are common in tropical and sub-tropical regions, where they can adapt to seasonal changes in temperature and moisture. An example of a semi-deciduous tree is Dipteryx odorata, which is native to South America and produces fragrant seeds used in perfumery.
