I love the sight of the Albizia. Partly because they are so beautiful, so majestic. And partly because, like the Casuarina, they belong to a category of tree, I call a ‘nostalgia tree'. These are trees that my mind automatically associates with memories of my childhood.
I am not sure why, but I think it’s because next to my primary school (Braddell Rise School) there used to be many beautiful Albizia trees growing at the Braddell Heights next to our school. If you were to travel along the Lornie Viaduct, you can still see many of these majestic trees.Below are some photos that I have taken of the Albizia. Can you identify these places are?
Here’s an article written by another lover of the Albizia tree giving good reasons why we should preserve them.
