I couldn't get very close to the Tree to take the shots. But you can easily identify the neem if you look very close at it.

Neem is also called Dogonyaro scientifically called AZADIRACHTA INDICA. It belongs to the family of Meliaceae.

Botanists say that Neem bear fruits after 3-5 years of planting and when fully matured that it can produce up to 50kg of fruits every year for at least 100 years. Amazing!

The various parts of Neem tree have one or more medicinal applications. Mostly known in Nigeria for its use in the treatment and management of MALARIA, Azadirachta indica leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds, seed oil, roots and bark however, can be employed for the treatment of malaria.
Talking about Malaria treatment, the leaves of Dogonyaro are boiled in most cases with lemon grass in water and the patient is asked to inhale the aromatic vapor/steam usually with a blanket cover all around him to induce profuse sweating. The patient simultaneously is asked to drink part of the herbal extract. Thereafter, he will bath with it.
Other uses and applications are for the treatment of DIABETES MELLITUS, SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED INFECTIONS , HAIR TONIC (seed oil application), BRONCHITIS , LOW IMMUNITY, SCABIES, ACNE, ULCERS, ECZEMA, RHEUMATISM, HEADACHES, HEPATITIS, CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES, ALLERGIES and HERPES.
Research works have also shown Neem to posses HEPATOPROTECTIVE (liver protection) , ANTIBACTERIAL , ANTIDIABETIC, ANTIFUNGALl, ANTIVIRAL and anti-malarial properties.

Hola @emjoe la imagen se ve dudosa pero para mi este es el árbol de Nim, este es un árbol de crecimiento muy rápido, es robusto, frondoso, sus hojas son perenne y verdes, aquí la utilizan como espanta mosca porque su extracto actúa en los insectos, como antialimentario, ocasionándoles la muerte.

English please :)

Hello @emjoe the image looks doubtful but for me this is the tree of Nim, this is a very fast growing tree, it is robust, leafy, its leaves are perennial and green, here they use it as a fly scare because its extract acts in the insects, as antifeedant, causing their death.

I think you got it right, although the spelling for "NiM" is different from what I saw online. You will be rewarded too. 🙌
