    The owner of the tree in [thread=12485]this[/thread] plant identification thread thinks it may be a citrus. Perhaps someone here will recognize it. I have some doubts about it being such though as it doesn't seem to have the right look.

    To me it looks like a root stock from a falled tree . I believe Mr Shep. explained leaf identifications in one of he's or her's past postings

    I would say knowing you by your intellectuuarl postings " with repesect" would be helpful.

    Many times the tree may fail. It all depends on the root stock, The tree and where its grown.

    Gowing a tree in a indigenous area isnt easy, But you can do it. Learning is and should be fun. Dale

    Junglekeeper I believe you are correct. It does not look like citrus. May be a close relative, but not citrus of any type I have ever seen.

    What throws people is the flower cluster more so
    than the leaves but by the leaves I do not feel this
    is a rutaceae at this time. I may know more later.

    Mr.Shep is a he and is in the employ of Snickles,
    whom is a she, in another online Citrus forum.
