Cherry Brasilian

Amburana is a genus of trees of the Brazilian family of Fabaceae, better known by Cherry. It has a straight trunk with bark brown color orange, flattened dark green foliage canopy. It flowers from October to December and fruits from July to August. The wood of these trees is considered noble and very to-used in the production of furniture. Its overexploitation and deg-radation of ecosystems have contributed to the lack of large species, being considered a threat-ened species by habitat loss.
