Requesting to please ID this big tree captured in Ooty in November 2013.
There were numerous such trees alongwith the Eucalyptus trees on both sides of the road from Ooty to Pykara.
In the semi-shade, the entire foliage had a beautiful silvery look.
This is Acacia melanoxylon. These sickle like structures are Phyllode,
