The National Tree of UAE


The national tree of UAE is The Ghaf, scientifically known as Prosopis cineraria. It is also commonly called Jammi, Shami or Khejri Tree. It is an evergreen tree which needs very less water and is most probably, the sturdiest tree in the United Arab Emirates and can withstand its harsh climate and temperatures.

During recent years, a large number of groves of ghaf trees were cut down due to the rapid development of cities. So it has been cited illegal to cut down a ghaf tree and permission is required by the authorities to cut it down.
