Neolitsea has about 60 species in Indomalay to E. Asia. N. sericea is an oil source for medicine and soap making (seed). Most of the Neolitsea species are small trees of minor usefulness. Some are used for their wood which is classed under the name Madang which is the wood of the genus Litsea. The leaves are very aromatic. Young leaves are fuzzy and have bronze color which gives a tree very showy appearance.
