Anogeissus is a genus of trees in the family Combretaceae. There are about 10[1] to 12 species distributed in Asia and tropical Africa.[2]

These are trees and shrubs with tubular flowers that lack petals and dry fruits with ridges or wings.[1]

Axlewood (A. latifolia) is used for its wood and tannins and as a fodder.[3] African birch (A. leiocarpa) is used for its wood and to make yellow dye and medicinal compounds.[4]
