This book is about amazing variety and beauty of Indian trees, their many functions and uses.

The trees discussed in this book are mostly the common roadside or avenue trees easily sported such as the Banyan, the Peepal, the Shisham, the Jack-Fruit tree, etc and a great majority of them are indigenous to the country though a few exotics have also been taken up. Even these latter are common now all over the country and have adapted themselves well to Indian conditions.
