Tapang tree (koompassia excelsa) is one of the giant trees of Borneo. The tallest measured specimen is 88m tall! There are a lot of Tapang trees in this old logging area. The trees are not cut down because local folks like to collect honey from bee hive which built on the canopy of this giant.

The bamboo ladder can be seen here in the fallen tree trunk. Locals always like to collect honey from bee hive which built on the canopy of Tapang tree.

The insect (beetle, I guess) is trapping insect the resin of Tapang tree. The insect thought the fallen Tapang tree is a dead tree, so it drilled a hole on tree trunk but when the tree is not dying, it produce resin to protect the tree from any "intruder".
