    Roots logo (645 x 430)

    The trees on this trail were selected for their interesting features that set them apart from other trees in the park. The Kapok, for instance, stands out due to its sheer size and thorny bark. The Malayan Banyan is a majestic sight with its aerial roots hanging down. One of the Madras Thorns you get to see here is Singapore’s largest to date. If you wonder how a tree looks like upside down, the Baobab is the tree to visit.
