This book features the various trees that are planted in this special man-made forest that covers 190 tree taxa from 40 families and 115 genera of which 147 are native to Sabah. Of these taxa, 30 are endemic or only confined to the island of Borneo and three species are endemic to Sabah. In the book, the trees are arranged alphabetically according to their scentific family names which are colour-coded at the lower margin of each page and within the family, the genera and species are arranged alphabetically. Each plant is accompanied by a botanical description (that attempts to give a layman understanding of the various pans of the plant), the ecology and distribution of the plant and also the uses, in some instances. For the ease of users, colour photos are included to feature some of these plant characters such as the habit, bark, leaves, flowers and fruits.
