Trees of Southern Africa

Awesome thread, can't believe I only stumbled across it now! We are very blessed to be living in Nelspruit on a 4500sqm stand which is covered mostly by indigenous trees and plants. Will post some pics and hope to be a regular contributor.

Great, I remember, Years ago Miss World or Miss Universe Contenders from all over the World descended on South Africa where the Winner would be crowned. When Miss Australia was asked what she liked the most about our Country, she replied: "The serenity of the Lowveld."
Mpuma and KZN have the most amazing abundance of Flora.

Noneking you need to tell us what some of these trees are. The idea is to identify them - that way we all learn something.

My apologies......

Big fig in two of the pics is an African Rock Fig
Other photos not of specific tree, but just of our garden as per my post.
Will stick to pics of single trees with identification........

No Problem. Beautiful garden you have. If you can identify individual trees its nice and if you cannot putting a close up pic might enable one of us to identify.

That rock fig must be pretty old to have grown like that.

Does anyone know what this tree is? It blooms a beautiful luminous green this time of year in Jhb.

Doesn't look indigenous. Our wildlife would prune that tree to a stump at this time of the year.

a quick question...

My brother sold his house and there's a red ivory tree there that he planted a couple of years ago from a seed. Its about 3 meters high now.
I would love to transplant this tree to my garden. Does anyone know if they are sensitive to that? I know some trees like a wild seringa you cannot transplant no matter how much soil you dig out. Ill rather leave the tree of it has a slim change of survival.

My first reaction would be that trees would be regarded as part of the sale and unless prior agreement was reached, removal would be in breach thereof.

Saying that, you should be able to transplant the tree. Make sure you preserve enough of the roots, trim back branches and have your new hole prepared in advance

Very happy to have stumbled apon this tread. I am a tree lover by nature and as I do not have the space to plant trees where ever I want I fell in love with the smaller versions, bonsai. We have a big geelhout in the front yard that I am proud of. Other that that my trees are relatively small compared to the beautiful trees I see some of you have. And to think, my next door neighbour is a tree cutting freak. One day we caught him even trying to cut down one of our trees because he had nothing left in his yard.

Any way. I will be watching this tread and the amazing foto's you guys post.

Red Ivory trees grow extremely fast, why not plant a young tree?  any specific reason for wanting your brother's?



Planted this one a year ago from 10l bag... Already well over 2 meters

My trees have only been in training almost 2 years now so not really up for viewing. But I wil post some foto's of my work in progress when I get back home. Not all of them are indigenous though.
