Description: Copaiba trees are considerably branched and grow from 15-30 m high. They produce many small, white flowers on long panicles and small fruit pods with 2-4 seeds inside. The part of the tree that is often used medicinally is the oleoresin that accumulates in cavities within the tree trunk. It is harvested by tapping or drilling holes into the wood of the trunk and collecting the resin that drips out, much in the same manner as harvesting maple syrup. A single copaiba tree can provide approximately forty liters of oleoresin annually, making it a sustainable rainforest resource that can be harvested without destroying the tree or the forest. Although it is often referred to a balsam or oil, it is actually a oleoresin.
