Elistonia is yet another example. We planted it because it's a beautiful tree, very majestic looking and quite a stable performer. However, it also sucks all the nutrients and water from the soil and literally makes the ground barren around it. Same is the case with different types of Ficus / Rubber trees. We have started bulk plantation of Ficus in our cities just because it looks beautiful. It will surely have its effects in next few years but who cares?
So what should we do? What is the guideline?
