Plant is Tectona grandis (Taek) and is brought from lucknow and planted in the Sriganganagar (Rajasthan) a semi arid region of the North Rajasthan. Now plants are of appx. 10 years of age
and are much branched at the tip forming crown like structure. Want to know weather the identification is correct because they are not tall and straight as the characteristic is. one picture is of flower/fruit of the teak

This tree does look like Tectona grandis (Teak). This used to belong
to Verbenaceae but not it belongs to Lamiaceae.
The crown formation can offcourse be due to breaking off of the tip of
the tree or drying due to heat. It usually doesnt prefer drier areas.
