(Anogeissus leiocarpus) is a tall evergreen tree native to savannas of Tropical Africa
it germinates in the new soils produced by seasonal wetlands and grows at the edges of the rainforest, although not in the rainforest, in the savanna, and along riverbanks . The tree flowers in the rainy season, from June to October. The seeds, winged samaras, are dispersed by ants.
