Prunus africana (Hook. f) Kalkman, 1965 (previously Pygeum africanum Hook.f) is a topographically far and wide tree confined to high country woods of fundamental land Africa and remote islands. The appeal for the bark has prompted remarkable obliteration of the species in regular woods, prompting worries on the drawn out manageability of gathering and the preservation of the species. In spite of the way that Mau woods is a secured region, the district encounters illicit abuse with P. africana being one of the primary targets. The tree is of incredible interest for its solid wood and profoundly restorative bark making its population to be under danger.
