General Information

Cynometra commersoniana is a tree.
The plant is harvested from the wild for local use of its wood.
Cynometra commersoniana is threatened by deforestation due to the occurrence of small-scale targeted wood harvesting for subsistence living and slash-and-burn land management techniques. Although it is predicted to decline, it has a large extent of occurrence and several large subpopulations located within protected areas. The plant is, therefore, classified as 'Least Concern' in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species(2013)[
