this tree has an aromatic resin

the trees lose their leaves during the cool, dry season, and the branches which are usually reddish become whitish, so the trees appear dead

Bursera, named after the Danish botanist Joachim Burser (1583-1639) is a genus with about 100 described species of flowering shrubs and trees varying in size up to 25 m (82 ft) high. They are native (often for many species endemic) to the Americas, from the southern United States south through to northern Argentina, in tropical and warm temperate forests habitats.
