Rohit ji, the Tree 1 seems to be species of Gymnosporia,  could be G. rothiana.
Regards.

Tree 2 could be Pavetta species (a shrub) and Tree 3 looks like Ixora pavetta (= I. arborea).

With regards

Vijayasankar

Hi,
 Agreed.
Photographs 1 & 2 - Maytenus rothiana
Photograph 3 - Pavetta sp.
Photograph 4 & 5 - Terminalia sp. most likely T.elliptica [T.crenulata].
            With regards,
              Neil Soares.

Dear Rohit,
I have some doubt regarding first and second photographs. The leaves
in the second photographs may not be of tree 1 (Gymnosporia ).
The leaves in second photograph appears to be of some Flacourtia sp.
(compare the petiole)

Hi,

I agree with Neil Soares with id of these trees and do agree with the
doubt raised by Divakar


Please be care ful while posting and I remember the moderator had a
request to post pictures of one species/type in one mail. If you have
multiple trees/species/types please post it separately that make life
easy.
Further, It is always advisable to provide details in the prescribed
format. Now a days most of the posts doesnt have relevant information
that leads to more guesses than clear id. Therefore, I request you to
kindly provide enough information for us to have a more clear look at
the pictures.


Regards
Giby

Some earlier relevant feedback:

“Tree 2 could be Pavetta species (a shrub) and Tree 3 looks like Ixora pavetta (= I. arborea).

With regards

“Agreed.

Photographs 1 & 2 - Maytenus rothiana
Photograph 3 - Pavetta sp.
Photograph 4 & 5 - Terminalia sp. most likely T.elliptica [T.crenulata].
            With regards,

              Neil Soares. ”

Hi,
 Stick by all my ids except the second which is a Flacourtia sp.[as rightly pointed by Divakar]  possibly F.indica [Tambat].
                     Regards,
                       Neil Soares.
