Flora and Fauna
Silver Oak is the most popular tree grown all over Yercaud Hills. There are about a dozen varieties of Fig Trees, Jack Trees, Naga (Jambolana), Kadukan(Gall Nut), Red Cedar, White Cedar, Selavanji, Rosewood, Teak, Ebony, Sandalwood, Pig Nut, Tandi, Pongamia, Mangoes and Cittalenji which grow naturally in these hills. The demand for valuable wood has almost made certain trees such as Sandalwood, Rosewood and Ebony nonexistent. The Shevaroys Bombax is unique to Yercaud and it is not found anywhere else in the world.
