Cedrela angustifolia is a species of tree in the mahogany family, Meliaceae. Local common names include cedro de Tucumán, cedro bayo, cedro coya, and cedro del cerro.[1] It is native to South America, where it occurs in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, and Peru.[1]

This is a species of mountain forests. It easily colonizes disturbed habitat, forming dense canopy. These stands still occur in Bolivia,[1] and the tree is common in parts of Argentina.[2] However, it is a valuable timber tree.[2] Some populations have faced substantial declines, and it is considered to be an endangered species.[1]
