Manilkara kanosiensis (commonly known as Torem or Sawai[3]) is a species of tree in the Sapodilla family. It is thinly dispersed in low-lying rainforests over a large range, from the Muluku Islands of Indonesia to the Bismarck Archipelago (New Britain and New Ireland) of Papua New Guinea. It is endangered by the furious pace of logging in its native habitat, where it is felled as timber.[1]
