NEEM - protects our environment in flood control, reduced soil erosion and less salination.
AMLA – a tropical tree with great medicinal properties
MANGO - trees help to filter water, combat salinity, clean the air and increase flows into water catchments. They also provide food and shelter not only to humans but also to wildlife.
