Turpentine trees, locally called Gumbo Limbo are found throughout the Island, but mostly in dryer forest.

This unusual-looking tree found in dry forest areas has a reddish, peeling bark. The leaves and sap smell like turpentine and have many medicinal properties, but it is the peeling bark that gives the tree its nickname – "Tourist Tree".
