Pakalaka Tree

Does anyone know where I can get pakalaka trees? May be called something else?? It is a large soft wood shade tree with broad leaves and small yellow bottle brush type flowers. You'll usually find one in an old dairy or pig yard. Ours is ancient and has collapsed in the middle and I'd like to replace it.

I think the correct spelling is Packalacca and it's commonly called Ombu (Phytolacca dioica).

There are a couple of old Ombu trees near where I live and one is heritage listed. Diggers Club currently have them for sale for $12.95.
