The Trees of Alabang Hills,
Muntinlupa City, Philippines


These are the trees I have observed and identified in Alabang Hills Village, Muntinlupa City, Philippines. The trees are in parks, roadsides or private gardens, and all can be seen from the public areas of the Village. I have included tree species that can grow more than 5 meters in height, even though in some cases the particular trees growing in the Village have not yet reached that height. All pictures were taken in Alabang Hills. No picture from other areas or other sources were used. I welcome  comments, suggestions, corrections and questions from Alabang Hills residents and visitors.
