The seeds, leaves, and young shoots can be cooked and eaten as vegetables. This tree produces a great deal of pollen and nectar, making it a valuable tree in the production of honey. The bark is used to make a red dye and a soap. The wood is high quality and used to make furniture as well as charcoal. This tree is a food source for the Amethyst Hairstreak butterfly.
