Schrebera alata is a plant in the family Oleaceae. It grows as a tree up to 15 m (50 ft) tall. The specific epithet alata is from the Latin meaning "winged", referring to the petioles. Its habitat is forests and woodland from 1,000–1,800 m (3,000–6,000 ft) altitude.[3] Schrebera alata is native Ethiopia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya, Tanzania, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Mozambique, Eswatini and South Africa.[3][4]
