MEDICINAL PROPERTIES
The tree has grey bark that peels in long fibres, pinnately compound leaves, and bunches of small white flowers. It grows as both an evergreen and a deciduous tree in the deciduous monsoon forests of India making the tree very drought hearty.
In general, supplies are poor through overexploitation. Some species become canopy trees (up to 30 m high), and large pieces can occasionally be found in the trade.
Parts of the tree are reported to be useful as stimulant and appetiser and also in dyspepsia, diarrhoea, leprosy, obesity and worms. Bark is also reported to be used for body ache, ulcers, wounds, eczema and pimples.
