Is this tree a Pod-Mahogany? This tree sits in the middle of the road on the S130 (a loop of 13 km on the main Croc Bridge - Lower Sabie rd). I did not take a close up of the leaves unfortunately. Taken in June 2010. According to my book guide Pod Mahohany should have no leaves in June.

Agree, from a distance it looks like a Pod Mahagony, leaves can stay on longer, general guidelines are given in the book. The rest of the bush still looks quite green.

Here's another tree that I'd like ID help for. Seen on the Dzundwini loop in April 2016.

Could be Afzelia quanzensis-the tree the mahonie loop is named after
