I snapped these (I think) local yellowwood leaves in Cape Town's Glen. One finds yellowwood trees male and female (they are dioecious). The trees are very slow growing, and have a wood of exceptional quality -- something like yew wood. OBSERVATION: We considered yellowwood for pews when, under one of my minstries, we built a Church. Needless to say, the price was out of the question. We finally chose sapele wood, which is like mahogany. Our building committee had the good taste to reject pine.
