Oh yes that is really good one. Always wanted to see other similar phyllode bearing species.
Fabaceae – Mimosoideae- week Acacia mangium from Coimbatore: Sharing the images of Acacia mangium from NBNP, Anaikatti, Coimbatore.
Thanks for showing another phyllode bearing species.
do you mean the entire green”leaf like structure” is a phyllode??
Yes … what looks like a leaf is its petiole modified to take up the function and form of leaf. The main leaf is rudimentary at the tip, if rarely visible in young leaf falls off very early. In Parkinsonia the rachis is flattened, the leaflets which are very small usually fall off in dry environment and rachis functions as leaf (phyllode).

Attached are pictures of Sapindus trifoliatus from Sagar Upvan, Mumbai captured in February 2013.
I dont think this is Sapindus trifoliatus.
Is it Acacia mangium?
Totally agree with …
The leaves seen are NOT leaves, rather, leaf-like phyllodes, common for the Genus Acacia.
Yes Acacia mangium planted by forest department at many places for its wood.

Requesting to please ID this plant. This plant was growing near the jetty at Anjur, Thane on the banks of the Ulhas river. The plant was around 7 feet tall.
I have not seen the plant, a friend got some leaves at home because it looked peculiar. The pics of the leaves are captured at home. It was not easy to remove the leaves from the stem. It took a lot of effort for the friend to remove these leaves from the tree.
Is it possible to ID this plant?
Thank you… for a prompt ID…
Yes Acacia mangium. Planted by forest dept. for wood.

I would like to know whether this is still under full cultivation or gradually spreading in the wild and getting naturalized.
This species is not as popular as its cousin A. auriculiformis among the farmers. I have not observed it being cultivated on a substantial scale, It is true that there was a hype around this a decade back, wherein in it was believed that it produces more biomass per unit area compared to A. auriculiformis. In my opinion it has lost ground. I have not observed it growing in the wild unlike A. auriculiformis that has escaped…!
Thank you …, I have seen a specimen from Delhi from a tree under cultivation there. There was no other record known to me. It is a native of Moluccas. It can be used for land rehabilitation and fuel wood production. An analysis of the seeds is desirable as they are usually highly nutritious (as reported for some other species) and fit for human consumption.
Interesting tree, then. wonder why did the interest wane? is it an environmental ecological problem. some acacias need // misuse water? or like the Prosopis juliflora or Acacia juliflora misuse the scant water resources of a land?
The planters of South India introduced many acacias primarily for providing shade and think of the capability of them in nitrogen fixation. Moreover, the acacias flourish well in arid situations such as Rajasthan where they welcome them. The photographs of the fruits attached herewith are of Acacia colei and not of A. mangium.
It may kindly be noted that the images are a mixture of Acacia mangium and A colei.
Further, Acacia colei is hitherto unrecorded for Karnataka.
so which picture is which species. can you please enumerate for me
Thanks for pointing out. The image of fruits that you referred to as that of A.colei has been omitted while inserting the images in the relevant species page.
