pliant

Here is my best explanation:

'flexible' is the definition.
('pliant' can be a synonym of 'flexible')

'tree possibly includes one' is the wordplay.
'tree possibly' becomes 'plant' (tree is a kind of plant).
'includes' indicates putting letters inside.
'one' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral).
'plant' placed around 'i' is 'PLIANT'.
