  1. Wow,this tree has lots of benefit for human's health. I'm not familiar with neem trees, I don't know whether it's available in my country...

  2. I'm from the Philippines and we also have Neem trees around our yard, but they are not as huge as your Neem. Neighbors are asking for leaves and seeds, too. I used neem water (boil leaves on water) as bath when my daughter has chicken pox. It relieves the itch and I think it killed the virus because she only had 6 chicken pox blisters! It's very effective on hyperacidity, too, but really really bitter!
