Polyalthia longifolia is belonging to Annonaceae family. Polyalthia longifolia is locally found in the dry areas of India and is commonly known as “False Ashoka.” Additionally It is also cultivated in Southeast Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Additional names for Polyalthia longifolia are green Champa, false Ashoka, cemetery tree, mast tree, and Buddha tree. Polyalthia longifolia is generally acknowledged of as a street tree due to its potency in reducing noise pollution. The adaptable Polyalthia longifolia can grow up to 15.0 m tall macroscopically, with symmetrical pyramidal growth and weeping pendulous branches. The name Polyalthia derives from the Greek words poly, which means numerous, and althia, which means remedy, signifying that this plant has been used to heal a wide range of illnesses and problems. The various plant part extracts demonstrated a variety of pharmacological properties, including antibacterial, antifungal, antitumor (anticancer), cytotoxic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimalarial, and antiulcer effects. There are numerous conventional therapeutic uses for the plant itself. Therefore, it is more than simply a pretty tree; it can also be a good source of secondary metabolites and is regarded as a crucial plant for medicine.
