The Barkless Tree

One of the most unique trees in the tropical rainforests in Borneo is the Selunsur tree. It is easily identified because of its reddish brown colour and because it has no bark. The tree really stands out from the rest and you can see it from far away. Selunsur trees normally grow near to the streams on undulating hills or low land. The wood is very hard and it is normally used for making flooring and furniture.
