Prunus africana

September 12, 2009

P. africana can be found growing amongst moist forest and river vegetation at around 1500 m – 2300 m. Its primary uses are for firewood, charcoal, timber, furniture, poles, utensils, carvings, as a medicine, and for bee forage.
The tree is typically propagated from seed. Seedlings can also be transplanted from where they have germinated in the wild. Due to human pressure, this species is becoming rare in the wild, although it is becoming increasingly popular in agroforestry plantations and reforestation campaigns.
