Turpentine Tree on Whistling Cay

St. Thomas US Virgin Islands: Rain Squall
Rain Squall Over St. Thomas

Turpentine Tree on Whistling CayLife is tenacious. This turpentine tree has taken root in what appears to be solid rock, its roots reaching down into crevices and cracks searching for what little soil and even less moisture is available.

Perched high atop Whistling Cay it has undoubtedly been buffeted by high winds and strong squalls. Nonetheless it survives and grows into a mature tree.

Another turpentine on the island with its trunk twisted reflecting the results of it’s harsh environment.
