  1. David Francis  Identification: If the yellow-green bands in the 3rd photo were broader, more obviously completely glabrous, and the dark resin thicker, not just a thin veneer, and the branchlets flexuose, I would say it was Acacia verniciflua. Otherwise it could be Acacia leprosa var. graveolens.
