Re: Trees and Princes
If you call the tail of a lamb a leg how many legs does a lamb have? It
still has four calling a tail a leg does not make it one. If you call a
Rowan tree a European Mountain Ash you are correct. If you call an American
Mountain Ash a Rowan you are incorrect. Many Rowan trees were imported into
America. The western Mountain Ash is native. It is not a Rowan. see
SPECIES: Sorbus sitchensis
Sitka mountain-ash is distributed from Alaska south along the Pacific Coast
and through the Cascade Range to northern California and east to northern
Idaho and northwestern Montana http://fr.fed.us/database or
http://,www.mnpower.com for the European variety 'The Rowan Tree'
In Australia the wet eucalypt forests of southern Tasmania are dominated by
Eucalyptus regnans, called the Swamp Gum - or Mountain Ash when on mainland
Australia. We have three Eucalyptus here in France. They are imported.
If you call the exceptional man who was Henry premier Jarl of Norway a
Prince it does not make him a Prince. What ever you do not call your new
tree a bin Laden it will die quickly.
