The Pau Brazil is Brazil's national tree. It can reach a height of 30 meters! Its perfumed yellow flowers appear from September to December. The Pau Brazil is part of the history of Brazil colonization: its reddish wood was a great commercial interest, causing intense competition and even fighting among explorers in Brazil. It was abundant on the Brazilian coast, particularly along the coasts of the modern-day states of Rio de Janeiro, Bahia and Pernambuco. Used in civil and naval construction, violin bows and, primarily, as coloring in paint, the Pau Brazil tree is today almost extinct! Help us protect this beautiful tree and replant it!
