Euphorbia tirucalli (commonly known as aveloz, Indian tree spurge, naked lady, pencil tree, pencil cactus, milk bush) is a tree that grows in semi-arid tropical climates. A hydrocarbon plant, it produces a poisonous latex that can cause temporary blindness.

The pencil tree is a shrub or small tree with pencil-thick, green, smooth, succulent branches. It has a cylindrical and fleshy stem with fragile succulent twigs often produced in whorls, longitudinally, finely striated. The oval leaves are long and about; they usually fall off early. It contains a milky, toxic and corrosive sap. The yellow flowers are at the ends of the branches.
