Geographic Range [top]

Range Description: The Colombian subpopulation is considered to be Endangered. In Panama, the largest subpopulations are found in the Canal area and in Darién. It is one of the few trees often left uncut after forest clearance because its large size makes handling difficult. Solitary individuals and scattered subpopulations are distributed throughout the rest of Panama, and in neighbouring Central American countries it is relatively common.
