Kindly help me with the ID. Seen in Kudremukh, Bhagawathy nature camp. It had no fruits or flowers.
The tender leaves resemble that of Persea (Machilus) macrantha. If so it has to give phenolic smell after crushing the leaves.This is just a wild guess.
I think this is Persea macrantha

May be a Persea sp. Need better images of leaves.
Thanks a lot for suggesting Persea.
Pl. check comparative images at /species/a—l/l/lauraceae/persea
Adding more pictures taken today.
I could see tiny green fruits.
It seems to be Persea macrantha.
Please identify these flowers , photographed at Karbi Anglong (Assam): 3 images.
For me its Castanopsus lanceifolia. Please confirm.
Appears to be some Lauraceae member.
Fruits of the same tree.
These may be from some other tree.
Looks like Lauraceae. Some Persea species?
The attached images are not of Castanopsis lanceifolia (Roxb.) Hickel & A.Camus
Its look like Machilus glaucescens (Nees) Wight
Ocotea glaucescens Nees
Persea macrantha (Nees) Kosterm.
