About Alnus nepalensis, Alder, Nepal Black Cedar, Uttish, उत्तीस

A. nepalensis is a deciduous alder with silver-gray bark that reaches up to 30 m in height and 60 cm in diameter. It occurs throughout the Himalaya at 500–3000 m of elevation from Pakistan through Nepal and Bhutan to Yunnan in southwest China. The leaves are shallowly toothed, 7–16 cm long and 5–10 cm broad. The flowers are catkins, unusually for an alder produced in the autumn, with the seeds maturing the following year. Utis wood is moderately soft. It is occasionally used for making boxes and in light construction, and as firewood.....
