Dalbergia cochinchinensis

Dalbergia cochinchinensis, the Thailand Rosewood, Siamese Rosewood or Tracwood, (Thai: พะยูง, Phayung) is a species of legume in the Fabaceae family.

It is a threatened tree yielding valuable hardwood found in Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam.[2]

Illegal logging [edit]

Although officially protected,[3] trees of these species are subject to illegal logging in the Dangrek Mountains.[4] The logs cut on the Cambodian side are usually smuggled into Thailand by the hundreds.[5] Being highly valued in the wood carving and furniture industry Phayung logs easily find a market.[6]

The Thai government is currently taking steps to regulate the international trade of Siamese rosewood trees, but China has voiced concern that the enforcement of regulations under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (Cites) will affect supply to its markets.[7]
