Hi all where I currently work (construction site) there are hundreds of these guys growing. It is quite an attractive tree. There are many seedlings coming up and I before I take one I would like to know the plant so I can give it the best home I can...

The first 3 pics are for one tree and the last 2 for another.

Any help appreciated cheers!

Hi, the second two pics sure look like Acacia concurrens 'Black Wattle', pretty common around the area. They grow fast but die and fall over after 9 or 10 yrs so not

recommended as anornamental. They also make a mess and seem to be a favourite for gall wasps. Sorry, can't id the other one although it does look familiar. Cheers

Thanks man,

Good to know, I actually have some black wattle from tube stock, what a coincidence...

I thought the first could be fibriata, but there does seem to quite alot of acacia that look similar..

Thanks again.

The second is not longifolia based on the phyllodes features. With the pic posted the OP should be able to ID it with species growing locally based on them and flowering alone..

The first could be fimbriata as its also in flower around here and has very similar features. I cannot be sure tho as I need good clear, close pics to tell usually.

looks like fimbriata and concurrens, if you guys are not clearing the land maybe you could go back and collect seeds opposed to digging next generations up :)

A. fimbriata is the first one.

The second one Im not sure, a picture of a fruit (seed pod) would help with ID on that one.
