Handsome tree

This is my favorite acacia tree in the Loyola Heights, Quezon City campus of the Ateneo de Manila University. When the Jesuits moved the campus to its present location in the 1950s, they planted acacia trees along all its roads, and what used to be scrawny saplings are now large, handsome trees. This particular tree is right in front of Xavier Hall, the university's main administration building. There are larger, more luxuriant trees elsewhere, but I love this one because of the moss growing on the branches.
