Trees of the Indian forests not only absorb huge quantities of carbon dioxide and simultaneously release large quantities of oxygen. They also help to an extent moderating the temperature in a given locality. They provide food and shelter in one way or another to large numbers of animals and birds (and even for human beings in many cases!). At the same time, when they come into flower, they add much colour to the forests.
Touching Trees is an endeavour to share this information and knowledge with others who may be interested to visit forests in India on vacation or study, or as part of a hobby or proffession. It is in the nature of a field guid that describes nearly 150 species of common forest trees in India in simple layman's language and, hopefully, will encourage readers to also want to know more about Indian forests and forest trees.
