Albizia falcataria? for ID SN March 18 : 14 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (3)
Tall tree from Lalbag Bengaluru,
Perhaps an exotic element – not recorded in any Indian literature.
Father Mathew has described this species in his flora of Tamilnaducarnatic, it appears to be Falcataria moluccana (Miq.) Barneby & J.W.Grimes (= Albizia falcataria (L.) Fosberg, Paraserianthes falcataria (L.) I.C.Nielsen)
Falcataria moluccana is an introduced species in India.
… is right. In fact I have checked all the species of Albizia and segregate taxa so far known to occur in India and it is not matching with any known species.
It looks rather like Albizia odoratissima

It is not an Indian plant it is an introduced tee, it is frequently planted in Coorg coffee estates also.
I”m not familiar with introduced Albizia spp.
Whatever I wrote earlier still stands. It is certainly not Albizia odoratissima.
Thank you for your confirmation, Sir. I am curious what it might be.
Interestingly there was another discussion about Falcataria moluccana on this group concerning a tree posted by … from Bangalore.
