Kindly help in identification.
location:ambyvalley rd. lonavala/mulshi pune
plant habit:Tree?

height:6-7 ft.

This seems to be Leucaena leucocephala (Lam.) de Wit.

This could be Chilarvel [Acacia torta]. Please check these links


Negative for Chilarvel. Could be an another species of Acacia. Send the closeups of the flowers and foliage for proper ID..

Subabul ie Leucaena leucocephala will not have thorns whereas Acacias have thorns of varying sizes

Can be Acacia leucophloea

A full tree pic would help as they have typical canopy structures.

I thought i knew this plant and tried to ID it. But now i find two more similar looking trees that can be confusing.
I fail to find any prickle or spine in the images in this thread. But, at the same time, i am not sure if this can be Leucaena leucocephala (Lam.) de Wit.
One interesting point –
(i) pinnae 1.3-3.8 cm long in Acacia leucophloea (Roxb.) Willd.http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=5&taxon_id=250063323

(ii) pinnae 5 – 10 (16) cm long in Leucaena leucocephala (Lam.) de Wit.http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=5&taxon_id=200012201

I shall try to get more pictures if I am able to locate it.
