bucare, coral tree


Explanation:
Erythrina poeppigiana (Walpers) O.F. Cook is a leguminous tree used in several agroforestry systems in Tropical America including shade for coffee, cacao and pastures, living fence posts, forage and fuel wood. It is also a promising species for alley cropping and mulching. Ease of management, high biomass production, nitrogen fixation and multiple uses make E. poeppigiana a suitable tree for farm and community forestry. It is known as "cámbulo" or "barbatusco" in Colombia, "bucare" or "cachimbo" in Venezuela, "amasisa" in Peru, "poró gigante", "poró de sombra" or simply "poró" in Costa Rica, "pito" in Guatemala and Honduras, and "immortelle" or "mountain immortelle" in the West Indies; the more formal English name is "coral tree". (Holdridge and Poveda 1975; Russo 1993). Website has very complete information on tree.
