Identification Guides

Know our trees: What to plant and what to avoid.

Our tree identification guides were created as a companion to our workshops. They explain how to identify trees, going over the different canopy, leaf and flower shapes, and give an explanation of what the Plant-Insect-Bird relationship means. They contain identifying features of common native and non-native plants of Mumbai. Physical copies are given out at all workshops, but an online version is available here

We also were commissioned to create a guide for a school. This identification guide also contains information on local butterflies and birds along with native and non-native plants.
