The Origin of South American Walnut
The South American Walnut Tree is somewhat similar to the Suar Wood Tree, however not entirely. South American Walnut is also native to South America, particularly Peru. In the mid 20th century, Spanish colonists brought over this tree to Southeast Asia. It was particularly well known and appreciated for its wonderful qualities like the ability to provide shade due to its wide canopy and improving the quality of the soil by increasing the nitrogen content. Although they share the same botanical name, Albizia Saman, they have some significant differences. They differ in terms of place of origin, color, and density.
