In the book 'Trees of Delhi', pg 207 where the tree is described the following is mentioned -- 
"Where to see it: Delhi's largest baobab, in Buddha Jayanti Park, was decapitated in as windstorm in 2004, but should recover and resprout. One young specimen in the Indian Institute of Immunology, near JNU. Lodi Garden lost a 9- year- old tree to a fire in 2000 "   
Hope this helps.

regards,
Rashida.

Dear group,

I'm urgently looking for information on the location of baobab trees
in Delhi.

I've found some minor discussion on Flickr about a tree-lover in Delhi
who apparently planted 7-8 baobabs in a North Delhi school. I'm very
keen to find this gentleman.

Any leads on any trees appreciated!

Very sincerely,
Raghu

There is one large Baobab in Greater Kailash 2 market, in the park
opposite Annapurna sweet shop. Not many seem to know about it.

No question of hurting expertise. We are all learning Indian Flora.

It would have been much better if you had given the name of the plant. We bought ir from nursery like that.
