Over time, this majestic and perennial tree gained recognition and was immortalized as an icon, adorning the current 5 Dollar bill introduced on 9 September 1999. The exact Tembusu tree, warmly referred to as the "Five-Dollar Tree” still stands at the Singapore Botanic Gardens to this day. The Tembusu tree is then named as one of Singapore’s heritage trees by the National Parks Board.
Not only does the Tembusu tree hold historical importance, but it also possesses cultural and spiritual significance. In Singaporean folklore, it is believed that the tree is a symbol of strength, dynamism, and resilience. It is said to bring good fortune and protect against evil spirits. Many Singaporeans even consider it a sacred tree, holding it in high regard and incorporating its symbolism into their everyday lives.
