identify this tree

Postby roba72 » Tue Nov 04, 2014 6:29 pm

hI all
I have this tree at my home which is 5 years old making this tree 5 years old, and about 6 meters high I didn't plant it, it just started growing here. I live in hornsby area and have seen this tree around the area. Would like to know what it is and if its a weed or not or toxic.

Any ideas

Rob

Definitely an Acacia, don't know the specie though.

There's a bad, invasive weed that looks just like that, I'm buggered if I can remember the name though. Sets seed pods and little black seeds that look like acacias, but aren't. I'll have a google. Greg I 's pretty good at ID, he might know it?

Edit: Might be this? Cape wattle (Paraserianthes lophantha, formerly Albizia lophantha) I'm not sure.
