Simarouba glauca: potential for growing in wastelands.

Abstract

This paper introduces the tree Simarouba glauca [Quassia simarouba], its cultivation and uses. It is established that although S. glauca is fast growing and performs well in waste lands, it has not received attention in plantation programmes. Thus, the State Forest Research Institute in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, India, has established a plantation in its campus and is monitoring the growth of the tree.
