Tree Society of Zimbabwe
bringing together people who are interested in trees
Join us
On outings and events around the country to discover & enjoy the trees of Zimbabwe

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.

What’s new?

Lichens added on 23rd October 2019

New page on Drip tips added on 25th October 2019

New page on Don’t Eat Me added on 27th October 2019



Newsletters “Tree Life” are being added between the years 1997 and 2001 on a fairly regular basis.

Tree Identification

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.

Tree Life

Tree Life is the society’s monthly newsletter. Find back issues on our Newsletter page.

Upcoming Outings

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.
