Good photographs.
 
As a kid remember many of these trees in Pune, along Prabhat Road and the road intersecting it on which Kamala Nehru Park and Karnatak High School are located. In fact I remember a tree bang opposite the school and in the plot (then empty, which I don't think would be the case now) adjacent to it

Dear Satish

I like your bird photography
Thanks

It seems you have spent quite a long time in Pune.You have a lot of fond memories of the city.
Spent most of my life there so its like hometown to me.

Luckily as you say the trees have not been disturbed in most areas.
But I guess a lot of roadside trees have been sacrificed to unplanned growth (aka 'development'). I fondly remember the complete banyan canopy from the University down Ganeshkhind road right past the LIC building, was shocked on my last visit to see it barren. It was nearly the same on Karve road right upto Nal stop, but this went off in the 80's to fuel growth of Kothrud. Even FC road had a lot of shade trees but have not been there recently

Parkia biglandulosa is a fairly common tree in Pune and I also remember carrying the yellow drumsticks which are the remains of fallen flowers of the trees while going to the school(MES Garware)early morning in December in 70s.I don't have any photos so far...
By the way do you remember or know about one nice Kadamb tree in the premises of Karnataka school which is still standing tall and it is probably only of its kind in The Erandavane area of Pune?
Of course I do. It was one of my favorite trees then along with the Kailashpati (Cannonball tree) which I remember at the Univ and the begigning of Karve road where it was next to a Kavath (Stone apple) tree.
 
Cheers,
Rajneesh

Now there are lots of Kadamb trees planted on out skirts of Pune on cross roads to Nasik Road beyond CME. Good Kailashpati (Nagchapha, Cannon ball) trees  are in Kamal Nehru park. In Mumbai VJTI campus & Ghantali devi mandir in Thane. In Nashik in Kuber Nivas Nashik road.
