Species: C. tabularis
Common name: Chittagong Wood, Chukrasia, Chickrassy, Indian Redwood.
The genus Chukrasia is monotypic, with previously recognised species now considered to be synonyms, "C. velutina" (this species) is listed as the provincial flower and tree of Phrae Province, Thailand and is widely used in Ayurveda as an important medicinal plant.
The trees are tall with a cylindrical bole and spreading crown.
C. velutina leaves are abruptly pinnate or bipinnate with leaflets that alternate or are subopposite, entire and unequal at the base.
The erect, oblong flowers, which are rather large and born in terminal panicles, possess four to five petals.
Mature fruits are a septifragally three to five valved capsule.
In tropical Asia, especially India, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Thailand and southern China, the wood is highly prized for high-grade cabinet work, decorative panelling, interior joinery such as doors, windows and light flooring, and for carving, toys and turnery.
The seed coat is crushed and boiled or eaten raw to treat diarrhea. An extract from the leaves is used to treat malaria and fungal problems.
