Another name for the Apple-leaf tree is the Rain Tree.
The Apple-leaf is found in various areas but achieves its tallest heights along rivers and other water courses.
The flowers of the Apple-leaf attract a lot of bees as they are very fragrant and give off a lot of nectar.
The wood is hard and heavy and is used for making heavy duty items such as tool handles.
Although the leaves are not very palatable a number of species, including Giraffe and Kudu, will occasionally browse on them. Elephants feed off the branches.
