It's technically not a tree, however, grows very tree-like and tall. It is very widely grown here...used as a architectural type plant in front of Spanish and Italian style homes.

Dont beleive it. I think that's a Euphorbia abyssinnica. And Andy,I planted one exactly by my right porch pillar like that. And my home is identical to that as far as I can see,minus the color- Mines light gray with white trim.
And I'm seriously thinking of removing it...its leaning more each year. about 17-18' tall now.
