Indian Trees: An Account of Trees, Shrubs, Woody Climbers, Bamboos, and Palms Indigenous or Commonly Cultivated in the British Indian Empire is a monograph on the trees of India, written by the German–British botanist and forestry administrator Sir Dietrich Brandis and published in London in 1906 by Archibald Constable & Co.
An extensive work of over 800 pages, the book is regarded as his magnum opus and a seminal work on Indian trees. Brandis was regarded as the "father of tropical forestry;" he worked with the British Imperial Forestry Service in colonial India for nearly 30 years, and served as Inspector General of Forests in India from 1864 to 1883.
