Experience the beauty and practicality of Alnus nepalensis, also known as Nepalese Alder, a multipurpose alder tree that originates from the subtropical highlands of the Himalaya. This tree prefers heavy soil and damp locations, making it a perfect fit for a variety of landscapes. In addition to its scenic value, it plays a pivotal role in land reclamation, providing firewood, and making charcoal.
Reaching up to 90 ft in height and 60cm in diameter, the Nepalese Alder features silver-grey bark, with leaves that are shallowly toothed and range from 7-16 cm long and 5-10 cm broad. What sets it apart from its counterparts is its fall-flowering species, producing catkins unusually in the autumn, with seeds maturing the following year.
The quick growth of the Nepalese Alder makes it ideal for erosion control on hillsides and for land recovery in shifting cultivation areas. Due to its ability to fix nitrogen, this tree tolerates a wide variety of soil types, and thrives particularly well in very wet areas, surviving even infertile sites. The Alnus nepalensis also offers a practical application in light construction and box creation thanks to its moderately soft wood. Explore the versatile and unique aspects of Alnus nepalensis, a genuine marvel of nature, and enrich your understanding and appreciation of the world's naturally occurring wonders.
