Hi - I was given this tree, but have no idea what it is!! (and thus do not know where to plant it out)
Please could someone help
Let the clues begin!
You are in South Africa .
Were you told anything about the plant - native to your continent or not? flowering or berries or height or.... what?
Is there a reason you cannot ask the giver of the plant?
All I was told about the tree was that it was a South African tree endemic to the Cape, which grew "straight up"???
I would suggest you try either a botanical garden, or I found a link to this herbarium which has a "contact us" link and presumably might be willing to ID for you
Here is a link that might be useful: The Bolus Herbarium
Maybe Gonioma kamassi, cape boxwood.

Looks like ficus alii
