"Rubber" Tree


Caucho en produccion, originally uploaded by fruedav.

They trees are "Hevea brasiliensis" or rubber trees. Look at the bottom of the tree and you can see where the sap is collected in small buckets. This process is known as rubber tapping. This sap is the primary source of natural rubber.

Esos arboles son "hevea brasiliensis" o arbol del caucho. Mire bien en la parte de abajo del arbol y podra ver donde se recolecta el latex en unos pequeños baldes el cual es la materia prima del caucho natural.
