Delhi has many trees, and we need many more. With increased pressure on the availability of  land for plantation, it becomes essential to plant the right trees. The booklet entitled “Pradip Krishen’s List of 100 most suitable trees for Delhi NCR” introduces some common and some very rarely spotted trees that survive best and more potential to contribute to the biodiversity of Delhi NCR.

The organisers have the honor of having the booklet released by the Chief Guest of the release function, Shri O.P Jain (Founder Member of INTACH and Sanskriti Foundation) and Special Guest Shri Subhash Chandra, DIG, Forests, Forest Policy & Forestry International Cooperation in the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India.

Those who can join us at IIC a little early (around 5.30 pm) can have the privilege of meeting Tibetan Master Calligrapher Jamyang Dorjee who will take a short  workshop on tree.
