This tree is the natural symbol of the island of Tenerife, together with the Blue Chaffinch.
When the bark or leaves are cut they secrete a reddish resin, one of the sources of the substance known as dragon's blood, used to stain wood, such as of Stradivarius violins. It also has a number of traditional medicinal uses.
