I'm not sure about capitalizing all of these tree names. I referred to Oak when I first wrote them un-capitalized, as that is how they appear there. If there is a policy to capitalize the names, that article needs work as well. Nathan 19:47, 2 May 2004 (UTC)
- There isn't a current hard-and-fast policy, but the majority preference as discussed on the Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Tree of Life is for capitalisation of individual species names (e.g. European Beech), but not for generic citations (e.g. beeches, oaks) - MPF 15:35, 12 Sep 2004 (UTC)
In an old garden in Lurøy (Rennesansehagen), located exactly at the arctic circle, is an 19 meter tall copper beech , and there is one 100 km north of the Arctic circle at Steigen Bygdetun in Steigen as well. There are probably many more, but these are fairly large and located in public places. There are lots of beeches in Trondheim; one European beech in Ringve Botanical Garden was presented as the second largest tree in Trondheim by circumference (4.35 m at chest hight - the largest was an European Ash) by the local newspaper Adresseavisen.
Change taxobox image
I think the current image in the taxobox is not good for that purpose, as the big trunks in the photo are not of beech. Beech trunks can be seen only in the background. The Sonian Forest photo is very impressive. Perhaps it could be changed to the taxobox? Krasanen (talk) 09:53, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
- It's unlikely to be notable enough to warrant more than a simple listing in the article. My Hillier manual describes 'Rohanii' as a purple-leaved cultivar of fern-leaved beech (the Heterophylla Group); it's described as "A remarkably beautiful, rather slow-growing tree", if that helps at all?
