God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods.  But he cannot save them from fools. - John Muir (1838 - 1914)  

 

 

Our foray into agro-forestry started at Ankura when Dr.Sheshadri advised us that it's a good option to have excess trees planted very close by and to steadily trim them as and when required to make the most of a small plot. We were able to grow more than 600 trees at our acre plot Ankura among which are 70+ species. Well... this has worked pretty well for us. In a short span of 8 years we were able to get about ~60 silver oak poles that were used during the construction of our house & cow shed at Vanashree.

When we started planting trees at Vanashree we were armed with our experience at Ankura and the two books  'The book of Indian trees' and 'Some beautiful Indian trees ' to guide us.

Over the years our knowledge of trees and our appreciation for trees has grown by leaps and bounds. Planting a tree sapling is a a very enjoyable experience but more so when you watch the tree grow! Flowers, fruits and all the life forms a tree supports cannot be put in words.
