    Please read the title as "Miliusa velutina Hook. f. & Thoms."
    Nice pictures ...!
    But it doesn't look like Miliusa velutina to me. Can it be Polyalthia cerasoides
    In that case I have two options, ..., 1) either they have put up a wrong nameplate or 2) I have mixed it up!
    I agree with ..., it is possible that here was a second tree that I missed.
    Polyalthia cerasoides
    Thanks for the ID.
