National Tree on the Verge of Extinction?

The national tree of Colombia, a wax palm tree, may be on the verge of extinction. Clearings of forests for the purpose of holding cattle makes the environment unfit for new trees to start growing.

I hope the tree is saved. It is not too late yet. It seems like it just takes the determination of some land owners. Saving tree species is important, just like any species.
