Identify Australia Plant/Tree

Katherine_7February 13, 2013

During our Farmstay in the Australia Outback, I have pictures of a plant/tree that I've forgotten the name of. The station owner made a statment that they cut these down for the cattle to feed on; helps with internal parasites. I've searched the internet, but not able to find anything that looks like this. Suggestions? Thanks, Katherine

I've heard Mesquite has naturalized in some parts of Australia.

Here is a link that might be useful: Prosopis glandulosa

Try investigating Schinus molle -- pretty widespread these days. See link below.

I think in Acacia too, it is not Schinus mollis.

Note that the rachis exceeds the pinnae in both the OP's image and this link.
