# Tree for id 070610MK3:  Kindly help to id the tree species common on the river banks at an altitude of 500 - 900 msl. For me this resembles Grewiasp. Experts please guide. What this white tree would be?
Date/Time- 04-05-2010 / 02:00 PM
Location- Place, Altitude, GPS- Mudumalai wls; 700 msl
Habitat- Garden/ Urban/ Wild/ Typriparian and also on closer deciduous forests
Plant Habit-tree with whitish bark
Height/Length- ca. 5 m
Leaves Type/ Shape/ Size- 10 x 4cm; oblique at base

- ... the leaves remind me of Ziziphus oenoplia ... BUT cannot see the spines !! Could be wrong.

-  the leaves do look life Ziziphus oenoplia !! but the plant is spineless even the young shoots have spines I have seen it . 

- Unlike Ziziphus oenoplia this is an unarmed tree. Yet the leaf characters resemble Ziziphus oenoplia

- ... not Trema orientalis.
Have some views of T. orientalis at my photostream at flickr.

- G.hirsuta is a shrub and it have hirsute plant body; whereas the posted picture has nearly glabrous leaves and is a tree. Kindly refer the following link for G. hirsuta.: http://groups.google.co.in/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/b...
I am requesting the id of this tree once again with more pictures. Please
help me. Any possibilities for this to be a Sapindaceae member?
... are these all photographs of same tree - same time ?
... because some of the photos: d 024. jpg ... 25, 26, 27, 28, 29 ... give a strong impression of the Trema species, perhaps the charcoal tree, Trema orientalis ... me could be wrong !!
Sorry for not mentioning the details. The d 024 to d 31 were taken at Nilgiris Eastern slope area (12 Feb 2011; Alt: 400msl) and the pics E104-107 were taken at Mudumalai wls, TN (04 May 2010). But both the locations are at
same river bank, with a gross distance of 30KM.
Yes, ... the tree matches the descriptions of Trema orientalis.
Yes, I too think it is Trema orientalis.

As ... has mentioned you have possibly mixed-up the photographs. Granted that the leaves in some of the photographs look like those of Gol [Trema orientalis], but the flowers do not match.
... please consider the female flowers (me could be wrong) ... here, already in the fruiting stage ... the male flowers relatively (slightly) larger normally meet the eye.
... the set of first pictures E104-107 showing only leaves and branch, taken at Mudumalai WLS, do not seem to be of Trema.
your picture belongs to Trema orientalis which is a membe of family Ulmaceae very common in the riparian forests
