Welcome! Mike! I don't know what your tree is, but it would help to know where it is located...City, Country?

Without knowing anything about location, I'd say it resembles Grevillea robusta, although the leaflets appear slimmer than those I've seen.

I think so too, Carter. Here's the link to our database entry for Silk Oak:


If you scroll down to the pictures at the bottom, the one of the single leaf, or set of leaflets is very similar to the picture of Divermike's.

Yes, Grevillea. I think robusta is the only one that gets that big.

Hi to a fellow Floridian, Mike. Just so you know, it's a nice, pretty tree when it's small but gets very messy and really weak as it grows bigger. Not a good tree to have anywhere near your house for both reasons.

Good news is it self-sows here in FL so you can always have a small tree if you like it, but take it out before it gets too big.
