Could someone please help with identification of this tree? I am always so fascinated by how the branches seem to twist and turn.

Hi Meandering Mouse

The tree in the foreground is the Apple Leaf - Philenoptera violacea formally Lonchocarpus capassa
These trees are extremely slow growing and should Elephant take a liking to them this can alter their growth in many strangely shaped ways.

Thanks Ross :thumbs_up: I thought the leaves looked Apple Leaf, but then the branches confused me.

This beautiful tree sighted on H1-4 near Satara in Kruger during Dec'13. Is this a Ficus sycamore? :hmz:

Kaapsedraai this could be a Red-leafed Rock Fig. I'm not familiar with the area, but the tree is a Fig of sorts and it does look like Red-leaf

Really need to see closer pic of the leaves and fruit...... there are several it could be. But maybe somebody has been there and recognises it!

Possibly Sycamore Fig, those clumps of small "branches" are the stems for the fruit which grows any time of year.
