ECOLOGY There are several species of Copaiba balsam, even having some botanical differences, to all are attributed the same medical-cosmetic utilizations. The copaiba balsam is adapted to a wide range of environments, occurs as well in the firm ground as in flooded areas, can reach 25 to 40 meters in height and live up to 400 years. The extraction process of the resin of Copaiba balsam is still rudimentary. A hole is drilled into the wood with an auger until to the center of the trunk, localized 60 or 70 cm from the ground. Immediately a tube is installed below the hole to collect the resin into a container placed on the floor. The resin is drained for a few days, and at the end of the harvest, the hole is sealed with clay to prevent infestation of trees by fungi or termites. The tree should rest at least three years before the next extraction. This process is called rational extraction. The average performance of each adult tree is 4 to 5 liters. The seed germination is rapid, however, growth rates of the tree are slow reaching only 50 cm per year. The extraction of the resin should not be made before the tree reaches a diameter of 40 cm.
