This tree is getting scarce in lower hillocks of Siwaliks, a part of which runs through Haryana, present shots were recorded from near Morni Hills..
I was not having its closer view (in fact, no picture yet)..only a few individuals found growing in dry and barren tracts of this area, but getting closer for flowers was really tough, I had to bring down some twigs..
Still happy to get a closer look of flowers..sharing with you..
Very good pictures!
first time to see flowers of Boswellia serrata. thanks you for these nice pictures
Thanks …, in fact I’ve also seen the flowers closely for the first time..
