This tree seen in Nairobi in the garden of Nairobi Museum.


Seems to Euphorbiaceae member of Croton sp,


Croton gratissimus ??


Yes, it’s matched …


Can this be Croton megalocarpus?
Just a suggestion.


I cannot say that ! Please compare with net  and herbarium images!


Resembles Croton species to me, wait for experts comments,


Yes, more closer to images and references at Croton megalocarpus (Kenya)

Looks different from Croton gratissimus as per Wikipedia  Useful Tropical Plants  SANBI  TreeSA
