THE CHOSEN TREE
In the heart of the Bicol Region in the Philippines stands the resilient Pili Tree. Bicol is hit by several storms each year and despite the toll it takes, The Pili Tree stands strong in its beauty.
In fact, it is touted as the ‘stress-loving tree’ because the magnificent Pili Tree bears even more fruit after every typhoon. All that she bears is what gives life to the province and its multitude of farmers and their families who rely on her generosity to make a life for themselves.
This is the reason why it's also referred to as the Chosen Tree.
