Our Inspiring Tree


Garapuvu is a stunning native tree, considered sacred for many people. It has attributes that we admire and identify well our concept Specialty Properties.


It has a remarkable “design” and stands out from the forest with a majestic size and a straight trunk of smooth gray texture, reaching 30 meters high and 20 meters of open circular canopy. Between October and December it is covered by yellow flowers that color the forest hills, showing its Brazillity.


With a very fast growth, produces fruits and seeds in abundance and its life circle has an important role in the regeneration of the rainforest around.


Native of Santa Catarina, became symbol tree of Florianópolis in May 25th, 1992 when it was protected by law (Law # 3771/92).


The wood of Garapuvu used to be used for the manufacture of canoes by its lightness and easy notch.


The origin of its name came from the indigenous language: “Guapyruvu” – the wind dancing tree.


Garapuvu (Schizolobium parahyba, Vell.) is also known in other regions as guapuruvu, guarapuvú, ficheira, bacurubu, badarra, bacuruva, birosca, faveira, pau-de-vintém, pataqueira and pau-de-tamanco (clog’s wood).


In old days the children use to play trading using their seeds as currency exchange. So appreciated were those seeds, that led to a legend that says "if someone gives you a Garapuvu seed as a gift, your friendship is sealed forever."
