BRAZILīS NATIVE TREES
Actualized in 04/02/2024
Chrysophyllum imperiale, a Brazilian tree .
This page is dedicated to the study and identification of Brazilís native trees, especially in the Southwest Region, including the Atlantic rain forest and the cerrado vegetation.
This home pageís pictures and drawings are mines, in majority.The page has various sections, see the list at side.
I live in Ipatinga, MG, Brazil, Iím 72 years old, married, and I work in electric maintenance in a pulp plant. Despite not being a professional in this subject (trees), I like this matter as a hobby.
Iíve had good help in books about this themeís. Please see in the link "Editora Plantarum" the best Brazilian book about this matter: Its name is "Brazilian Trees", and its author is Harry Lorenzi.
As I said, Iím just an amateur, and itís possible to make mistakes in these pages. In this case, Iíll be glad if you correct me.
I suggest you begin your tour by the principal list of trees.
I hope youíll enjoy seeing the diversity of our regionís trees, and, if possible, give me your help to identify same of them. Iím at your disposal to talk about this matter, and waiting for other people who share the desire for trees.
