To inspire people to go green and to live in harmony with nature, Green Mall is organising an Exhibition of Specimen trees. Hundreds of exclusive looking, grown up trees are put up at the campus of Green Mall. This 15 Acre campus is situated on Thakurpukur-Bakhrahat Road and can be reached within an hour from central Kolkata.
It is for the first time such an enormous collection of “ready to transport and replant” trees are on display. The exhibition timings are 7 AM to 5 PM and there is no entry fee.
This is a fantastic opportunity for collectors and farm house owners who value trees with rich and exclusive looks. Trees that are put up on show are up to 35 feet tall, having canopy up to 25 feet and girth of trunk is up to 6 feet. All the trees are sitting in pots or bags, healthy and ready to be transported and planted anywhere in India, no need to wait for years to enjoy a mature garden.
This exhibition would demonstrate how tall trees can be excavated live and can be stored and transported anywhere in the country. This concept was first introduced by Sri Dinesh Rawat in 2007, the period when real estate activity was booming in the country and thousands of trees were cut regularly. He felt that he should be able to get a solution to this and met with top botanists and gardeners in USA, Australia and Thailand and obtained a systematic training in this subject. He made this technology known to all concerned by making videos and uploading on YouTube.
Here is a list of few trees which you can behold - Terminalia mentalis, Cyrtostachysrenda, Adansonia digitate, Philodendron sellum, Bombax elipticum, Rhapishumilis, Pithecellobiumtortum,
