This book, when published originally over half a century back, met the demand for an explanatory book on common trees of India. It was written by a lover of nature, particularly of forestry wealth, who knew his Botany as well as aesthetics. He avoided involving the reader in the complex nomenclature of tees and explained the individual characteristic of each family in a simple language that should be intelligible to both, the specialist and the generalist. The interesting text is matched by brilliant illustrations by Ganga Singh that unravel many a mystery about the trees and their various uses, physical, emotional and even therapeutic. When the former Forest Botanist at the Forest Research Institute, Dehra Dun, wrote this immensely readable book, little shaps did he realize that it would remain an authentic source book on Indian trees even after much advanced research on different aspects of this natural gift to the environment. Printed Pages: 46.
