Trees Of Punjab

Trees Of Punjab

  1. Kikar (Acacia Nilotica)  This tree is on top of my list for tropical bonsai, only point of concern are its thorns, and below is an inspirational photo to shape my bonsai.

2.  Shahtoot (Mulberry, Morus macroura, Himalayan Mulberry)  This tree has been used by many bonsai experts, so this is also one of my preferred tree for making bonsai of tropical trees. Infact this has been used as the cover photo of the book, The complete book of bonsai by Harry Tomlinson.

And Luckily I found a seedling of Shahtoot (Mulberry) growing in my yard. I plan to plant this seedling in ground in a sunny location and let it grow for 1-2 years to thicken its trunk and i might train its root and stem while it grows in ground after reading some books and article.

4. Drek (Melia azadirachta)  and Neem (Azadirachata indica)


5. Jand (Prosopis cineraria)

6. Dhak (Butea monosperma)
