Latin Name: Toona sinensis
Forestart Reference: TOSIN1

A highly decorative deciduous tree, often multistemmed. Long and large pinnate aromatic leaves, often pink when young, used in Chinese cuisine. Smooth bark on young trees becomes shaggier with age (don't we all!). Small scented flowers in July, white or pink, produced in long pannicles at branch ends. Wood is used for furniture as a 'genuine' mahogany substitute. Also burns aromatically.
