Welcome to the new Tree Society of Zimbabwe website which is still under construction.
Our aim is to make this an interesting and informative website so bear with us as we develop it. You will be kept abreast of additions as they go live.
If you need assistance with identifying trees that are found in Zimbabwe, we recommend that you post images to the Tree Society Facebook group where members will try and help you to name your plants.
Alternatively, images can be posted to the larger Flora of Tropical Africa group. This group has probably more expertise available and will also discuss non-woody plants and plants found in other tropical African countries.
Whilst non-members are very welcome to join us on afternoon or morning day outings, only members will be permitted to go on weekend outings. Outings to private residences are reserved for members only – an email reminder to members will include the directions to the venue.
Saturday morning National Botanic Garden walk. This is a wonderful time of year in the Gardens. We will continue with figs as the main theme but if we come across anything interesting then we’ll have a look at it! Join us for a 1.5 hour walk, we will start at 08:30am from the usual place – the car park.
THIS EVENT WAS TO TAKE PLACE IN MARCH BUT WAS RAINED OUT, WE WILL NOW HAVE IT IN APRIL!
Sunday April 21st: We will be visiting Henry Hallam Dam also called Harava Dam. This is a really interesting venue with lots to see. It is also a very pretty venue. For those wanting to share lifts, meet at Mukuvisi car park for a 0900 take off.
Directions : We advise only high clearance vehicles. Proceed with care out on the Seke road past Coke Corner, past the bottom end of the runway of the airport on the left. Fairly soon after the runway there is a big sign which says JUNCTION 24 – an interesting fairly open area where one can buy goats and sheep. Immediately after the Junction 24 sign turn left onto a dirt road toward a small shopping centre called Panyoko Hideout and Miranda Nite Club, pass this centre and pay your $2 entrance fee at a small security hut and gate. Continue along this road for 2.9Kms to get to a place where there is a flat rock on your left and a clearing on the right. We will botanise there from 9.45am.
