This page is dedicated to the study and identification of Brazils native trees, especially in the Southwest Region, including the Atlantic rain forest and the cerrado vegetation.
This home pages pictures and drawings are mines, in majority.The page has various sections, see the list at side.
I live in Ipatinga, MG, Brazil, Im 51 years old, married,and I work in electric maintenance in a pulp plant. Despite not being a professional in this subject (trees), I like this matter as a hobby.
Ive had good help in books about this themes. Please see in the link "Editora Plantarum" the best Brazilian book about this matter: Its name is "Brazilian Trees", and its author is Harry Lorenzi.
As I said, Im just an amateur, and its possible to make mistakes in these pages. In this case, Ill be glad if you correct me.
I hope youll enjoy seeing the diversity of our regions trees, and, if possible, give me your help to identify same of them. Im at your disposal to talk about this matter, and waiting for other people who share the desire for trees.
