This species is not included in the British Museum's Enumeration, but it is found in the sub-Himalayan tract in India and may well occur in the Nepal Terai, especially along stream banks. It needs wetter conditions than T. alata does.
There are 175-450 seeds kg-1. Germination is improved by soaking the fruit in water for 48 hours, or by hot water treatment.
It can be planted as seedlings or stumps, and in India it is sometimes propagated by using large transplants with a ball of earth round the roots.
It was included in the trial plot at Butwal (140 m) where at the age of 2.5 years there was 100 per cent survival with a mean height of 4.0m and a mean dbh of 3.9 cm; better than T. alata.
The wood (940 kg m-3) is used for agricultural implements and the bark as a tonic. It produces a medium quality fodder, with a crude protein content of 8.9-11.4 per cent
