Cycas siamensis in BPFP
By: Russell Gray
Here are a few pictures to exemplify the expedient growth process of Cycas siamensis after a forest fire. The growth process from start to to finish with full flourishing palm leaves took only about 1 month with some of the specimens I observed. A great example of how these plants have endured many years and elements on the earth.
* Note: the photos are from different specimens I came across the day I decided to take photos. They are not the same specimen over a time-span.

The temporary shelter for petrified tree no. 7 (the one with the largest buttress) is almost finished. Thanks to Mr. Surapon Gawee, the former head of the petrified forest park, and all the staff, local people, and others who have been helping to accomplish this while waiting for the budget from provincial government. Special thanks to Tak provincial government, governor, vice governor who agree to give the budget for us to start the conservation project soon.
