There are two types of rain: the rain with drops falling downwards (as usual in the rest of the planet) and the horizontal rain produced by condensation (a specific feature in the island). The northern face of the mountains (windward) blocks the passage of the rain-producing clouds, pushed by the trade winds (Alisios). The leaves of the trees soak up the water and the drops fall on the land, resulting in the vast, thick forests found in the upland areas in Tenerife.
