Melia azedarach, also known as bead tree, chinaberry, pride of India, and Persian lilac, is a deciduous tree in the mahogany family. Native to Indomalaya and Australasia, it has a rounded crown and can grow up to 45 meters. The tree is not to be confused with Azadirachta trees, which are in the same family. The main utility of melia azedarach is its high quality timber, which ranges in color from light brown to dark red, and is commonly used in the florist and landscaping trade. The tree is also used as a shade tree, although it has been deemed an invasive species in certain regions, due to its tendency to sprout where unwanted and turn sidewalks into dangerously slippery surfaces. The fruits of the tree, which are toxic to humans in large quantities, are eaten by birds, and drunkard state can occur as a result. Despite its potential as a profitable harvesting opportunity, the tree remains under-utilized.
