Fraxinus sp. Most likely F. micriantha.

Thank you … for the lead.
Fraxinus floribunda Wall. looks correct ID. Please validate.

I think it matches very well.

Thank you … I hope a new addition to efi.

How does it look different from images at Fraxinus micrantha ?
What is the difference between two species ?

Elevation does not match.
Inflorescence is red.

I agree with you …, for Fraxinus but sp. not sure,

Most probably Fraxinus micrantha Lingelsh. but cross check F. micrantha as well.
Before Telkot on the left side?

You did not tell about the location.

It is not from bkt. Outskirt of Ktm…

Appears close to Fraxinus floribunda as per details and references herein.

Pl. check comparative images at efi site at Dalbergia page. 

I think does not matches with any of the Dalbergia species as per comparative images.

Looks like a kind of Ash tree. Will check further tomorrow.
