This Silver (Silky) Oak Grevillea robusta is standing in the Canal Rest House of  Chhota Thana village, Sonepat, Haryana.
I as well as by husband (Suresh C Sharma) have never seen such an aged G.robusta in the entire Delhi region inclduing Haryana, as this is supposed to be a slip trunk tree.
Strangely, it was not flowering, but a pair of Rock Pigeons inside the cavity.
Comments from experts are  welcome.

 The tree seems to have remained in its juvenile (rounded edged) foliage, despite the large stature of the tree. This juvenile status may well be why it hasn't flowered. (Not sure if this is a regular phenomenon, or just this season?)

 The burls on the trunk are rather common on trees here in the US, particularly in more humid areas, such as Florida, less so in drier areas such as California.
