Plz help in ID of the Tree/Shrub species.
Could it be Diospyros? My guess D. kaki or else.
Grows in coniferous forests.
Alt: 2800 m
Boos Forests, Rafiabad (Baramulla), J & K.
Not Diospyros at least. Flowers would help.
I think it is from Myrsinaceae Family and it could be Maesa indica (Roxb.) DC. but need to be check.
It looks like Rhamnus sp.
I think, Rhamnus purpurea
