A cultivated tree seen in Nasik.
I was told this is very rare known as ‘Tivas’ or Kala Palas.
Flowers are tiny white, bark is blackish.
I missed the flowering, but I can add pictures taken by the person who has planted this tree along with many other rare ones.
Curious to know the botanical name.
This is Desmodium oojeinense [previously Ougeinia oojeinensis] locally called Tiwas / Kala Palas. Have a sapling of this on my property at Shahapur. Sending a few photographs.
Thanks a lot for this id.
It would have been difficult for me to guess the id of this tree whose names were given as Tiwas and Kala Palas.
Is this a very rare tree?
This species is common in the Uttarakhand. As the flowering is over, otherwise, you could have spotted it here in Corbett. When in full bloom it is a treat to watch. Locally called here as “Sandan” and wood is used for making curd churning containers.
Thanks a lot for the additional information. I seem to have missed the bloom.
Will check if you have posted any pictures on our group.
… Thanks for your pictures from your property at Shahpur….. it will be a wonderful place with so many different trees. Wish I am able to visit sometime in future.
I also recognised the tree but all the individuals I know have pinkish flowers so I assumed it must be some other species.
Not a problem … You have been helping me with so many others.

QUERY AND ID REQUEST OF FLOWERING TREE ON NALLAH BANKS IN SHIWALIK HILLS : 7 posts by 3 authors. 2 images.
Could the members of the esteemed group provide an identity for this flowering tree growing out of the high walls of a seasonal rivulet flowing from the Shiwalik hills towards village Jainti Majri, 13 km from Chandigarh. Pixs taken between March 9-11, 2015.
These pics seem to belong to Ougenia oojeinensis, a scarce small tree in the area, but id confirmation is needed, as the trifoliate leaflets aren’t visible in the pics..
Your efforts are appreciable, I am yet to see this fully in flowers in that area..
Thanks, … I found this tree after a very rough trek into the deep nallahs of the Shiwaliks.
Yes, …, latest name is Desmodium oojeinensis ..
Thanks, … 1. How rare is this plant? 2. Could it have come down from higher altitudes by action of seeds transported by wind/water?
It is a beautiful tree to watch when in full bloom.
A medium sized tree (10-15m) grows throughout India and reach to 1500m elevation in Uttarakhand.
Called as Sandan in Uttarakhand and wood is used for making wooden containers for churning curd. A fine fodder tree too.
Often on steep slopes roots exposed to air develop new individuals (root suckers) which flowers even in younger stage looking as a shrub in flowering.
The species is found in India, Nepal and Pakistan.
