Other Care Works
As the plant spread and grows very fast, we can do regular pruning to give it the proper shape we want. If we allow it to grow and think of controlling it growth at later years, It will become very difficult and ultimately it covers large area. This can be a problem if you are growing Gulmohars at home. The tree is resistant to pests however some animals and insects drills holes it is branches which should be controlled otherwise the tree may collapse during storms.
