The resinous bark sap is used in varnishes. I found this young specimen along a trek to the source of a spring in the mountains of Salvador Benedicto. It can grow quite tall and we hope there will still be plenty of these trees in the future. The people living in the mountains used the sap for fuel for their lamps at night. I saw that the sap of this young tree is creamy white.
