Best Trees to Plant in Karachi

Post by merelogic » July 27th, 2016, 5:06 pm

Hi All,

I would like to have some recommendations on the Trees best suited for plantation in Karachi homes. Based on this information I will be asking many people to plant one in their home. Not sure but I think the following tree qualities would be great to have:

- Preferably provides some fruit or some other edible benefit
- Does not require a lot of water
- Is easy to manage in a home garden
- Is good at filtering air
- Well suited to Karachi climate/environment
- Does not create allergens or other problems

Thanks for your help.

Thanks a lot for this. Any idea where people can easily get seeds for these?

Also any other recommendations regarding trees that probably don't give much fruit but might provide various other benefits like medicinal benefits such as neem trees or are good at converting carbon dioxide to oxygen or filtering dust from air, or give good shade or are great to look at even. Trees that overall will benefit a Karachi home in any good way?

Thanks again.

Buy the fruits from market and grow their seeds... else buy ready to plant sapling in polybags from nurseries.. especially shahtoot and injeer are hard to grow from seeds...

You can have following as option:

1) Gul mohr
2) Neem
3) Darekh
4) Har singhar
5) Molsiri
6) Alstonia
7) Jaman
8) Peepal
9) Goolar
10) Sohajna
11) Gondni
12) Jungle jalebi
13) Copper pod tree
14) Tota
