Being one of the oldest and largest trees in Matang Mangrove Eco-Educational Centre, this mangrove tree of the species Rhizaphora apiculata (Bakau Minyak) was planted in 1947.

It aged 65 years old with the girth measurement of 176cm when it was being cut down due to damage caused by lightning struck in 2012. You can find its stump somewhere along the boardwalk.
