IS PALO SANTO ENDANGERED?

Is Palo Santo endangered? Short answer: no. Long answer: also no, as long as you are referring to Bursera Graveolens, and not Bulnesia Sarmientoi which also goes by the name ‘Palo Santo’.

Bulnesia Sarmientoi IS an endangered species according to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Bursera Graveolens IS NOT an endangered species according to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Peruvians harvest fallen branches and twigs of the Burseara Graveolens tree, a practice that is regulated by the government of Peru, so trees are not cut for wood harvesting.
