Just collected this tree that I believe to be a Gum Bumelia (Sideroxylon languinosum). It has a nice hollow and great bark as well as what appears to be a infestation of some kind of boring insect. Will try to get that under control and see how the tree develops if it makes it. Haven’t seen it used as bonsai but I think it could be a tree that has enough appeal to make a nice tree.

Cool native species with small leaves, flowers, and fruit (if female). I will be really interested to see how it does as bonsai.
