Climate and care

Climate conditions and care 

Mili Dubia is a very hard wood and can easily sustain frost and heat but prolonged winters can collapse the tree. The screen size of world temperatures requires watering every 10 to 15 days during the dry season whereas no irrigation is required in the wet season. 

One must note that the melia dubia tree is lacking at the taproot, therefore, it can’t survive in high-wind areas. One must take precautions and plant these plants on a shaded farm if you live in a high-wind region. In the growing days, you should protect it from animals like quotes because they used to eat the leaves of malabar trees so you can use simple barbed wire fencing at your farm.


Melia dubai tree reaches a height of 8-14 feet and starts sprouting side branches which need to be pruned regularly so that the tree can form a strong, sturdy, heavy and healthy trunk. 

It is one of the simplest trees to grow which doesn’t demand much fertilizer. NPK of 35-45 kg is required only twice a year which is not that difficult I guess. Apart from this regular watering is required but it needs less water than poplar and other trees.
