Discover the beauty and versatility of the Senna siamea Kassod Tree, also known as the Siamese Cassia. Native to South and Southeast Asia, this medium-sized, evergreen tree can reach up to 18 meters in height and boasts stunning yellow flowers.

The Senna siamea is commonly used as a shade tree in cocoa, coffee, and tea plantations, making it a beneficial addition to agricultural landscapes. In fact, in Thailand, it is even recognized as the provincial tree of Chaiyaphum Province, and some places in the country are named after it.

Besides its aesthetic appeal, this tree also holds medicinal value. Its leaves, tender pods, and seeds are edible but require boiling prior to consumption, with the water discarded. The plant contains a compound called Barakol, which adds to its therapeutic properties.

The Senna siamea serves various purposes beyond its culinary and medicinal uses. It can be used as a fodder plant, contributing to the feeding of livestock. Additionally, it is widely utilized in intercropping systems, windbreaks, and shelter belts, making it a valuable investment for farmers and landowners.

Wood from the Senna siamea, known as Pheasantwood or Kolohala, holds high value in Chinese furniture making. Its unique grain pattern, similar to that of pheasant feathers, adds an elegant touch to instruments like ukuleles and guitars, as well as decorative products.

Experience the versatility and beauty of the Senna siamea Kassod Tree. Whether you are a farmer looking for a useful addition to your agricultural practices or a lover of unique woods for furniture making, this tree will exceed your expectations. Explore its culinary and medicinal benefits, and appreciate its contribution to the natural environment. Invest in the Senna siamea today and reap its abundant rewards.
