Actually it's best stats are it's HP, Def and SpDef ;3. And it's Special Attack is higher than it's Attack.
Anyway, yeah Tropius is most commonly seen as a wall in Competitive, courtesy of it's DW ability Harvest which gives it a strong chance of continously getting Sitrus berry back, making it an extremely annoying Pokemon to face. Also you don't just train 250 EVs on defense, since you need multiples of 4 to affect the stat :3
Anyway in competitive play, the 'walling' set (In NU) would be a subseed being;
Tropius @ Sitrus Berry
Trait: Harvest
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Bold Nature
~ Leech Seed
~ Substitute
~ Protect
~ Air Slash
Leech Seed to cause damage & regain health, substitute + protect to stall, STAB air slash hit's grass types that are immune to leech seed. Sitrus Berry heals you when you get too low, and Harvest gives you a 50% chance of regaining it - and with Protect that means you will probably get it back = more stall.

Ingame it gets outclassed, in higher tiers in competitive it gets outclassed. xD

coul i change substitute for  sythesis so whenever my health becomes low due to substitue heal?
Synthesis doesn't have great pp
Also Sitrus Berry does that already in conjunction with protect really. Not much of a difference, and Substitute lets you block status which would easily put an untimely end to Tropius's stalling
