Excerpt from Tanning Materials of Latin America
There is a much larger variety of tanning material available in the barks of different trees of Latin America than is the case with the woods. The amount of tannin extracted from quebracho wood alone is, however, much greater than the total obtained at present from all forms of bark, leaves, and roots. Many of these varieties of bark have an extensive local use in the different countries, especially in regions where the quebracho does not occur. Thus far they have not become of marked importance in international trade.
