  teak tree (leaves)

 

Thailand

A teak tree (fig.) is recognizable from its large rough leaves, that when squeezed, release a dark red sap. The leaves are somewhat reminiscent to those of the ton phluang, but have a rough surface, rather than a smooth one (fig.). See also List of Thai Botanical Names.
