It is a tall tree growing upto 30 meters used as timber. As it is fast-growing, it is liked by foresters for plantation and for reducing the load on natural forest growth for timber use. 
It produces 1.40 lakh seeds per per kg. Its pod can be eaten. 
Because it is a hardy plant producing vast quantity of seed , it is considered weed at many places. I am told that Tamilnadu govt. earlier encouraged its plantation but soon reversed the policy.
