Dear friends.
                   Sending kapok / Ceiba pentandra  pics from Pune.
 It was photographed in April 2010. It is a wild tree on the NH-4 bypass , Pune.
I captured green trunk of Kapok but that time all flowers were gone and only open cotton pods were there.

Regards
Neha Singh

... agreeing with HS ... not growing naturally wild ... but planted for certain.
Regards.

This tree is blooming beside NH-4 Bypass,Pune.
If Kapok doesn't grows naturally wild..then it must b a planted one.

Thanks H S and Dinesh Sir..

Its planted in large numbers along the Eastern metopolitan bypass on
the way to the airport from Garia..passing thru . gariahat...park
circus... salt lake side to end up in Jessore road... spectacular
when the pods hang by the hundreds and at dusk the silhouettes look
like turned off chandeliers...

Thanks for showing this tree...
