What is annickia chlorantha?

It is a tree with yellow wood that can reach 32 meters in height, also known as :

  • Moambé jaune / yellow moambe.
  • Enantia chlorantha.

It is found in the forests of tropical Africa, particularly in Cameroon and Nigeria.

Although prized as construction wood, its most surprising feature is its therapeutic properties, which have been used for thousands of years in traditional African medicine.

Today, however, it is little used outside Africa.
