Know 10 Trees

With an area of 710 square kilometres and a population of 4.8 million people, Singapore has one of the highest population densities in the world.

Yet, sharing this space with us are over 2000 recorded native plant species. In total, there are about two million trees planted along roadsides, in parks and protected nature areas. It is no wonder Singapore is known internationally as a Garden City.

As a citizen of this Garden City, how well do we know our trees?

Without them, the city would be a harsh landscape of concrete buildings. Trees serve to soften the surroundings, adding beauty and colour to the scenery. They also offer a welcome respite from the tropical heat and glare, while we are outdoors at work or at play.

Do take a closer look at ten of the most commonly found trees in Singapore. They have always been around us; let’s take some time to get to know them.
