Bucida molineti seems like what some friends of ours are calling the "DBKL tree." The smooth branch "joints," are a visual match, and so are the leaf shapes.

However, this does not seem to match a particular tree that we are talking about. Aha. A different species, in the same genus... perhaps, from the knobbly branches, Bucida spinosa.

So there you have it. Boring job. I am entertaining myself while waiting for traffic to clear, by stalking trees at a park in TTDI. This job is turning me into a tree nerd.

Update: the architects say that the DBKL tree is Bucida buceras
