Over 100 Dipterocarp Species

Above: Shorea hemsleyana flowering magnificently at Rimbun Dahan.

Over the MCO, we have cleared some of the trees at the front of the garden in Rimbun Dahan where we had too many duplicate species, to provide more space and light for planting new species that we have acquired from a nursery in Johor that carries many Malaysian indigenous trees. We now have over 100 species of forest Dipterocarps, the slow-growing hardwood forest giants that make up the bulk of tree species in Malaysia’s tropical rainforests.
