Observations came in mainly from urban areas with cities such as Bangalore and Panjim accounting for the bulk of observations. Other areas where partner institutions led tree-walks also saw good activity. Several people organized local tree-walks around the country.

Top 10 species observed

About 680 species of trees were uploaded during the campaign of which the top 10 species are shown below. The species uploaded contained a good mix of both native species as well as exotics. Of the top 25 species 68% were native tree species. A full list of species can be seen here.

    Out of these participants listed above we can form a 'TresIndia club' to share our activities on propagation and conservation of trees throughout the country.
  • Gladwin Chakravarthy Joseph : Added a comment
    This is a fine idea. There is so much one can discuss on trees. Let us see how we can form a discussion forum within this portal so we can function like a club as you have suggested. gladwin
