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.

Enter by the Cleveland Dam  entrance We will meet at the 1st Picnic Site you come to at 1430 hours and from there we will decide where to botanize. A lot depends on the rains as to whether we can cross the little river. This is always a happy venue. Bring a thermos flask or cooler bag for after the walk.
