Neem tree or Syringa (Chinaberry)?
« on: March 27, 2013, 11:28:37 AM »
Hi

I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to tell the difference between a Neem Tree and a Syringa (Chinaberry) Tree from a seedling? I have a small seedling growing amongst my vegetables and I am hoping its a Neem tree, although I most probably think it's a syringa. :(

Is there anyway of telling early on whether it is a Neem tree or not? I really want a Neem tree in my garden for its medicinal uses but don;t want to confuse it with it's toxic cousin the syringa.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Luc

I'm afraid I don't know anything about neem trees - but I hope one of the other members can help you - after all, first hand experience is more helpful than googling......
