The timber of A. mannii is valuable in trees of good size and shape, which have become scarce. It is used for light construction. This species has been planted in rural areas in Cameroon and Ivory Coast and probably elsewhere in W Africa as a canopy tree or windbreak for coffee plantations and as an amenity tree in villages.
