we have a project and it's about trying to find out what the common name and the scientific name of the plant is. i'm part of a group but sadly, my group mates don't seem to care. now, i'm alone in this and our project is due this week. No matter how much I try, I can't seem to find the names of these plants. I've already been asking people if they know, but I have no such luck yet. Please guys, I really need your help. What do you think are the names of these two plants?

the one with the thorns is Euphorbia milli var. spledens, or commonly crown of thorns.

I am clueless on tree.

ps: I love tree too but not nearly as much as physically attractive women.

The tree could also be Ficus sp. or Eucalyptus?

now the leaves look like Cinnamomum cassia, or Indian bay leaves. I'm not sure on this one.

you might not have recognized a scent anyway, but some 'leave' a distinct memory like a bay, for instance, try 'googling' for pics that vngarden suggested of those trees - or of 'willow leafed' trees (bushes) and see if anything looks familiar. GTG to work now, but I will check back in later.

I think you gave the best option. That looks similar to the images provided Ilovetree.

I disagree. I do not think that could be an Agonis; maybe Agathis, but even that seems less likely than a Eucalyptus, (or one of those things we have called Eucalyptus forever).
