The rubber tree (*Hevea brasiliensis*) is a tropical plant native to the Amazon rainforest, known for its production of natural rubber. It can grow up to 30 meters (about 100 feet) tall and has a straight trunk with a smooth, grayish bark. The tree produces latex, a milky fluid that can be harvested by tapping the bark. This latex is the primary source of natural rubber, used in a variety of products, including tires, gloves, and medical devices. Rubber trees thrive in warm, humid climates and are widely cultivated in Southeast Asia, Africa, and parts of South America.
