மலை வேம்பு (Malai Vembu) the country cousin of the neem tree.
Malai Vembu

Pungam tree (புங்கம்), its a brilliant anti-duster and purifies oxygen, a must tree if your home is on the main road (so that it cuts of dust and sends fresh air). Also the spots on the leaves are a routine fungus and not any malady is what i heard.

Trees and Shades

Thanks to Nizhal …. a NGO to re-introduce Trees and their lives to us, did take part in a Treewalk on Nov1st. some of the trees seen during the walk and learning from them ….

With the help of Ms Chitra & Ms Yamini (the resource persons who helped us in learning them) (Thanks to Ms Yamini for going over my pictures and correcting the facts)

Palmayra
The Palmayra, is the State Tree for Tamil Nadu.

Poomarudhu
Poomarudhu / Queens Crepe Myrtle / பூமருது … is an Indian species (most of the indian species have the name “indica” in their botanical names) and have some lovely flowers.

Gulmohar
Gulmohar tree, not an native indian tree. Might have come from Madagascar.

More to come ………
