Hi everyone, i was wondering if anyone was able to indentify what type of tree is in the picture?

Any assistance or pointers in the right direction would be fantastic.

Thanks in advance!

The picture is not very clear. From the trunk I would guess a Brachychiton, but it would need the leaves to be sure.

I thought it looked like a Pine tree. Can you get closer and clearer shots?

My first thought was Queensland Bottle Tree (Brachychiton rupestris)

Here are two photos in our database from the above link:

Hello - is anyone able to identify the tree that produces this large seed pod please. It was found in a rainforest in far north queensland. It is probably around 50mm in width and 125mm long.

Thanks

Possibly from a Bottle Tree (Brachychiton species)? One for comparison:
Queensland Bottle Tree (Brachychiton rupestris)
