I was thinking of the wild olive tree, but those fruits are not poisonous. Any more clues for the arborially challenged, please, FG. :wink:

FG, what is confusing me somewhat is the idea of "sweet sounding". I thought perhaps of cherrywood, but can't find a reference to poisons associated with it. :wall:

Lol! This is an easy one! This tree found in Kruger and other parts of Southern Africa has a cousin that is found right here in the desert of Dubai... which is often found growing around ponds or wadis. Which tree or shrub am I thinking of? Name both trees.
