hi - more on the solitary SALAI -incense tree which
we saw at Mangar forest on the 24th june

From K..C. Sahni –book of Indian Trees—

Distribution-common in moist forests of Madhya
Pradesh less in U.P , foothills of Himachal , North
Gujarat, Maharashtra, and South India.
The bark exudes pinkish drops of resin when cut. The
tree yields a yellowish green oleoresin with an
agreeable scent when burnt.
cheers - Chandrima
