hey mate, can you tell us about the tree. if you break one of the leaves off does it leak a white sap? or when you crush one of the leaves does it give off a scent?
it looks a bit tropical or some sort of fruiting tree?
LOL it's funny that you used that pic. . . I sent it to the Bonsai Societies of Florida after that tree was stolen from meduring the Bonsai Convention at the Morikami Museum a few years ago. They posted it on their website to see if any one knew its where abouts........I still miss that tree. It was an air-layer I took and would have made a sweet little shohin in a short amount of time.
To answer your question...your tree is definitely not a buttonwood, but as to what it is I don't know. Probably something tropical judging by the leaves.
It is an Ardisia elliptica, here's a link: http://www.hear.org/starr/plants/images/image/?q=040209-0313
I used to have a scrawny little one that I bought from the discount rack at Lowe's. It struggled along for quite a while, but in the end it didn't make it...
OMG--sorry for bringing back that memory Ryan !! I sincerely hope that the freak that stole it develops root rot LOL
