This paper describes the introduction and migration of ornamental trees to India from other countries in Asia, and from countries in America, Australia, Africa and Europe. Some immigrant rare trees (including Monodora grandiflora [M. myristica], Amherstia nobilis and Tipuana tipu) and their locations in India are presented. Current restrictions on germplasm migration are briefly discussed.
