Bucida molinetti Or Indian Almond & Ketapang family tree

Recommended Posts

1. Previously, I used a smartphone app that says ... take a snapshot of a leaf;  and leave it to the program to identify the tree.

2. This application gave a totally wrong tree! Deleted the app... yet need to subscribe it monthly or yearly! LOL!

3. Finally, today, asked a client who owns Eco Scape https://www.eastec.com.sg : What is the actual name of this “umbrella” tree...
Combretaceae (Bucida molinetti = Italian name of this tree)

4. Also commonly known as Indian Almond and Ketapang family tree.

5. For me, I shall still call these trees simply as umbrella trees.. LOL

6. Light green version.. these trees are four years old:-

7. Dark green version.. these trees are much more older or mature tree than above...light coloured ones.. 

8. These Dark green trees are at least 8 years old:-

9. However, during dry Seasons, expect lots of leaves falling to the ground!

10. Thus on such occasions.. it may sound like mini firecrackers.. if one walks on the fallen leaves.. LOL

Walked on this... if closed my ears... really sound like small fire crackers going off!

Furthermore... entire foot path littered with it’s leave.

Yes these leaves belong to the mature Bucida molinetti tree..

I know of this owner who parked his car as much as he can shaded by the tree.

Of course! One drawback is when the tree sheds it’s leaves... and clog the drainage on the bonnet ...LOL

Q: Hi Cecil, wondering if these trees are ok for front of house to block the lamppost. And if the tree start at 2-3m tall, is that ok? Lamppost I think is 6-7m.

This tree looks good

Tree Podocarpus 罗汉松 quite a good outdoor plant:

The Bucida (Green) .. "It's you again"...

Landscaper say must maintain and trim. And it’s a strong tree so roots might spread. Looks nice though.

Reply: Yes, need to trim and maintain and even tidy up...
