Belleric Myrobalan

Terminalia bellirica is known by many names depending on the region, including Bhibhitaki, Belleric Myrobalan, and Bihara. It is a deciduous tree in the Combretaceae family, is common throughout India and Southeast Asia, and can be found at up to 3,600 feet elevation. It is an impressive tree, growing up to 60 feet in height, with a thick buttressed trunk and leaves that assemble towards the end of the branches, giving it a full, rounded canopy. Bhibhitaki makes a good choice for an avenue tree, as it is quick growing and can tolerate varying soils types and rainfall. The fruits can be used for its tannins for tanning leather, as a source of black and brown dye, and as a medicine.
