Are there any current catalagues like this valuable one of trees in Lalbagh?

Chandra Ravikumar, a volunteer who’s very active in Hasiru Usiru, has unearthed this treasure, and says:

I was able to find a 1891 catalogue of the trees of Lalbagh from Wiki. This is the link. Does any one know whether a later one is available, or has even been compiled? Is the Marigowda Library open to the public?

Any answers from the tree experts of Bangalore would be welcome!

  1. Uma Bharath gives this update:

    The Marigowda library is open to public and is supposedly one of the richest collections of Botanical references in the country.
    When I asked in the library a few months ago if there had been a tree census or inventory of sorts, post 1891, I drew a blank. Would appreciate any information in this regard.
