Enterolobium contortisiliquum


Brumadinho MG, Brazil

Also known as timbaúva, this species loses all its leaves during the dry periods of the year, and this is why it is called a deciduous tree. It presents a broad distribution in Brazil and is quite versatile in terms of environment, being as common in regeneration areas as in more ancient forests. It has fast development and low resistance wood, often used in civil construction, the naval industry, as well as for the production of small objects, such as toys and sculptures
