Mimosa hostilis

How does one identify a young tree that doesn't display flowers? The leaves are mimosa and even have the heat sensitive folding characteristic, but how can I be sure. Has anyone harvested root bark? can it be done with young specimans? Is there a way without killing the whole tree?

Have a look, there is a thread with Mimosa Hostilis pics in it... if my memory is good, quite dark stem with spines a bit everywhere... I don't know much about harvesting the root bark, though I think it would be hard to harvest it without killing the tree...

you don't have to kill the plant. you can just unbury a little bit the roots and harvest a quantity that won't harm the plant... but some natives like to use the full roots (actually they discard the bark and use the inner core only)... in order not to deplete their supplies they only pick the roots that grow towards the sunrise, lets say...
for harvesting the ideal is to use a mature plant and to do it on the end of a dry season...
