Bangkok street tree id
Can anyone help identify this tree. It is quite common as a street tree in Bangkok. I’ve tracked it down in an arboretum but it isn’t labelled. The tree grows in a columnar fashion and the leaves droop. The leaves are distinctive as they are very crinkled on the edges.

Whee! I finally lucked out! It's Weeping Mast Tree (Polyalthia longifolia var. pendula).

Lovely trees in Thailand. I've enjoyed looking at your photos.

Thanks so much for the identification. A lot of the trees are quite similar in Thailand and hard to differentiate if they aren’t in flower. This one really caught my eye.
