This particular tree stands prominently in Katong Park, and is the only Heritage Tree of its kind in the whole of Singapore!

    • Species:Syzgium grande
    • Common Name:Jambu Laut
    • Location:Katong Park

    The "Tree of the Month" will be awarded to the tree which has received the most number of virtual hugs over the previous month.

    There once stood a Sepetir tree (Sindora wallichii) in Changi, nicknamed the “Changi Tree”, that was so tall that sailors used it as a landmark for over 100 years! This tree was said to measure about 76 metres in height, but sadly, it was deliberately felled in 1942 as it was used as an artillery landmark for the invading Japanese army during World War II.

    Kampong Glam derived its name from the Gelam tree (Melaleuca cajuputi), which is also known as the Paper Bark Tree due to its white papery bark. Despite the soft appearance of its bark, this tree is a hardy species which can tolerate all sorts of tough conditions, and is even adapted to withstand fire!

    Before rubber became an important cash crop in the early 20th century, processed latex was derived from native trees such as the Nyatoh Puteh (Palaquium obovatum). This processed latex, also known as gutta percha, was used by the Malays to produce knife handles, flexible whips, and even cable insulators for submarines!

    Have you heard of the Handkerchief tree (Maniltoa browneoides)? This common roadside tree in Singapore is named after its prominent flushes of young leaves, which resemble soft white handkerchiefs hanging from the tree! However, these “handkerchiefs” do not last for long. Within a few days, they start to turn green and eventually harden into mature leaves.
