Schizolobium parahyba is a tree species from tropical America in the family Fabaceae. S. parahyba is a deciduous plant that can grow as fast as 3 m 10 ft. per year, to reach up to 30 m 100 ft. in height.
It is typical of secondary rainforests. It is an indigenous plant of the Atlantic Forest of Brazil. It is also found in Costa Rica in regions with a well-defined dry season.
Characterized by its straight trunk, young trees of 3-5 m 10-16 ft. have enormous bipinnate leaves that sometimes exceed 2 m 7 ft. in length, so many people confuse this tree with a fern or palm.
