Neem Tree


The Indian Lilac (Azadirachta indica).



Known for its medicinal properties (mostly the leaves & bark).




Siganus Sutor

On the first two photos the texture of the bark looks particularly attractive. How is it used?

Yesterday I heard a joke about bark (in which no dog was featured, but a horse):

— Pourquoi Napoléon n'attachait-il jamais son cheval à un arbre ?
— Pour qu'il ne mange pas l'écorce.

(PS – Why can't I just put my name as a signature?)


@Siganus Sutor
I'm not sure how the bark is used, probably crushed & used in concoctions. But I've used the leaf paste - great at treating skin conditions.

Name as signature? I don't know? It should work... :|
