    Default The Indian Ghost Tree

    A Kulu tree (Sterculia urens), also known as The Ghost Tree, is a beautiful tree of central India with a white trunk and peeling papery skin. “It survives drought partly by going leafless and lying dormant for more than half the year making up for the loss through a green chlorophyll layer that lies just under the skin of its trunk.” : ‘Jungle Trees of Central India by Pradip Kishen'.

    Shot with Fujifilm XPro1. 18mm. Photographed at Gir National Park.

    First time when I saw this tree, I had asked what it is. One cannot stop noticing this tree in a forest. It differentiates itself from its neighbours. Thanks for sharing.
    Cheers,
