    Don't want to be a fool, but it sure looks like a lanceleaf cottonwood (Populusxacuminata

    I think it's a gum (Eucalyptus sp.). Ian Barclay at Desert Northwest (do a web search to find him) might be able to tell you which one.

    Thanks Ron. I've just found out that this tree might be Brachychiton populneus from Australia.

    That's probably a better match.

    It doesn't look like a eucalypt (gum tree). Have you ever seen it flower?
    There are, btw, 3 genera of 'eucalypts - Angophera, Corymbia & Eucalyptus, all belonging to the family Myrtaceae.
