Casuarina equisetifolia 238

The Casuarina is a slender, rather wispy looking tree which grows in poor sandy soil, widely seen on Goa's coast and village waste land. It has the typical leaves of a pine tree and the cones are small and prickly to walk on. Despite their normally modest size, they are said to attract lightning during a thunder storm.
