Australian red cedar (called also toon, tun, suren, surian cedar or Indian mahogany), Toona ciliata,[1] is a forest tree in the family Meliaceae which grows throughout southern Asia from Afghanistan to Papua New Guinea and Australia.[2] In Australia its natural habitat is now extensively cleared subtropical rainforests of New South Wales and Queensland. The Australian population was formerly treated as distinct species under the name T. australis. The species can grow to around 60m in height and its trunk can reach 3m in girth. The largest recorded T. ciliata tree in Australia grew near Nulla Nulla Creek, west of Kempsey, New South Wales and was felled in 1883.[3]
It is one of Australia's few native deciduous trees. The timber is red in colour, easy to work and very highly valued. It was used extensively for furniture, wood panelling and construction, including shipbuilding, and was referred to as "red gold" by Australian settlers.[5] Heavily and unsustainably exploited in the 19th Century and early 20th Century, almost all the large trees have been cut out and the species is essentially commercially extinct.[6]

Is it Toona hexandra?: A large tree was observed on Panhala near Kolhapur Maharashtra in Dec 2010.
I think this is Toona hexandra. Please validate. This looks similar to one which ... had posted recently. - It looks like Toona hexandra [syn. T.ciliata].
 
The last 2 photographs are of the Toon Tree [Toona ciliata].

Looks like one of the Meliaceae member closely related to mohagany.
Post the pictures of flowers and the foliage.
I haven't seen the flowers yet
The fruits have some similarity with Spondias sp. (may be S.mangifera). This is only a guess.
Could it be Toona ciliata? (Family - Meliaceae)
Could be T.c.
yes Toona ciliata

Hooghly : Cedrela toona Roxb. :  11 images. 18 posts by 7 authors.
The images at identify this species as Cedrela toona Roxb. (= Toona ciliata M.Roem.).
"Bengal Plants" has one more.
Fine pics. Flowers seems quite robust. It has started blooming in Pantnagar (Uttarakhand) also (16.3.13).
I imagine why you dont call it Toona cilliata M.Roem.
I was also wondering it as a different plant until I read ... mail.
As per GRIN as well as The plant List the name should be Toona ciliata.
Flora of Pakistan mentions it as Cedrela toona.
Good find of a robust plant with large beautiful inflorescences.
Thank you very much ...
One interesting point in the 'Bengal Plants' -
(i) leaves usually 7-jugately pinnate, panicles glabrous; sepals ovate-acute; capsule sub-globose...... ------------- C. toona Roxb.
(ii) leaves usually 9-jugately pinnate; petiole long; panicles puberulous; sepals orbicular; capsule ellipsoid.... ------ C. microcarpa C. DC.
I was hesitant and wanted to go for the C. microcarpa. I am very sorry for not providing its Bengali names, the names are confusing though. The 'Bengal Plants', 'Flora Indica' and 'Hortus Suburbanus Calcuttensis' refer it as তুন (TOON). But, local people call it মহানিম (MAHAANEEM), though according to the 'Bengal Plants' MAHHANEEM is Melia azedarach L. Some people also call it as পাঁউ (PAU).
the local name Mahanim is shared by three trees with similar looking pinnate leaves
Ailanthus excelsa in Oriya
Toona ciliata (Cedrella toona) in Hindi and Bengali
Melia azedarach in Bengali
Thank you very much Sir for the interesting information on regional names of plants.
I haven't seen (didn't know) Ailanthus excelsa but 'Bengal Plant' also describes that it is MAHANIM (also GORMI-KAWAT) in Oriya. Neither Bengal Plants nor the Flora Indica gives any Bengali name for Ailanthus excelsa.
Melia azedarach L. (Meliaceae) is also known as Ghora neem (Ghora meaning horse) in Bengal and Assam. But I don’t know its exact relationship with horses. 
Yes, Melia azedarach L.is also known as GHORA-NEEM in Bengali.
But, sometimes i think that actually it could be GORA-NEEM in older days. GORA in the sense of either Bigger or More (bitter tasted), as we have PATI-LEBU (NEBU) and GORA-LEBU (Citrus aurantifolia and C. medica).

These trees are growing as avenue trees in Delhi. They flower in April.
Seems to be Toona ciliata

It is Toona ciliata as far as I can see from the thumbnails. Smaller attachments would be great!
From dehiscence of capsules(fruits) and inflorescence it seems Toona ciliata. The floral parts are quite aggregated and overshadowing and do not give a clear vision of leaf structure.

Tree seen in the Corbett area with green fruits.
Is it Toona Species?
Toona ciliata is known to occur in the area. Entire leaflet margins suggest it T.ciliata. Locally called as "Tun", "Toni", "Sun".
Thank you. I guess Toona id was given to me by the guide.
But with lots of trees that were new to me and lots of pictures, it becomes confusing.

Please help me in identifying the tree found on roadside (moist deciduous forest adjoining). I could not see the flowers. Is is an Chukrasia sp.?
Height: 15 m
Location: Mettupalayam - Conoor ghat road (NH 67)
Date: 04 April 2016
There is mix up. First 2 pictures are of Symplocos and the rest would belong to the family Simaroubaceae
I doubt Symplocos... Don't think that. The pictures look like that of Toona ciliata.
Toona ciliata for me too
They are not of Symplocos or Simaroubaceae,
the first two pictures belong to Olea dioica and remaining ones belong to Toona ciliata. 
While posting in this site, please check up whether there is any mixing of plants. This can be done only by people who are taking the photographs. They are better judges. they are really seeing the plants.  
... Please do an initial screening with available flora or Herbarium then for confirmation it can be posted in the site. Then only one can develop  expertise in field botany then to Taxonomy. 

Thank you ..., I will do my best to develop the field botany expertise. I am sorry for the mixing up of plant pictures, my computer has little sw problem and so many of my recent posts are with mixed photos. I will be correcting it in the future. Thank you.

Pl. have a re-look.
Thanks ... I have labelled the photos as per the tree bearing the placard; though of course, it is well known that the placards can very well be wrong.
I hope ... or anyone familiar with trees of Lalbagh, validate the ID.
For me the ID is correct. Nevertheless, it is better to watch out for the  flowers and fruits and any close up of leaves would also help for confirmation..
it is Toona ciliata.
Its in every corner of Lalbagh, in all kinds of trunk sizes.
