    Hi - ID question to ask

    Hi guys

    Ive searched through some ID sites and dont seem to be able to find the tree that I have.:blush:

    The leaves are longer than they are wide, the wood is brown and the leaves are smooth.
    There are also small buds on the tree which look as though they will flower white with 5 points

    Thanks for the help

    Hi
    Not really the edges of the leaves are smooth as are the surfaces.

    Thanks

    Hi - ID question to ask

    Can you take a closer photo of a leaf just take one off the tree, put it on a black background and take a photo of it for me, the shot you took as a little to much light for me to see what it is..
