This mangrove tree is listed as Critically Endangered in Singapore. I saw these young trees growing on both sides of a narrow little stream.
The only wild growing Berembang trees I've seen were the old mother trees I saw at Woodlands Park near Mandai mangroves in May 2009. At that time, I saw two live ones and one dead one. In Dec 2010, only one was healthy while the other didn't look well. Although I have seen lots of flowers on the old mother trees, I never saw them bear fruit.

The features of the trees match the descriptions of the tree, and those I've seen planted in our parks. The young branches hang down like those of the weeping willow. Leaves eye-shaped.
