Naming conventions[edit]

Hmm ... I could have sworn that naming conventions on Wikipedia require words within article headings to be lower-case unless describing a proper name (e.g. place names, personal names). I'll check ... --Humehwy July 6, 2005 06:15 (UTC)

I have moved this article back to its original "Camphor_laurel" title in accordance with Section 1.1 of the Wikipedia naming conventions. --Humehwy July 6, 2005 06:19 (UTC)
This issue has been extensively discussed on WP:TOL talk, with a small majority in favour of full capitalisation - MPF 6 July 2005 23:23 (UTC)

Noxious Weed Declaration[edit]

Does someone have a reference for the fact that the Camphor Laurel has been declared a noxious weed for the whole of NSW? It hasn't been declared a noxious weed over the whole of NSW (a Class 1 weed under the Noxious Weed Act 1993), and is only declared a Class 4 (Locally Controllable) in some councils in NSW - Parramatta City Council being an exception to this. (JROBBO 06:38, 13 July 2006 (UTC))

I checked the Hornsby Shire Council regulations (as at Apr 2007) and as long as the tree is under 20m tall it can be culled without council approval. No specific reference to the fact that is has been declared a noxious weed.

Object to move[edit]

I object to the move from common name Camphor Laurel to Cinnamomum camphora. This is against long-standing policy (i.e. when a well known common name exists, go with that for our title). No consensus was built in advance here, so please move it back. Badagnani 16:09, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Any examples of using the plant as....[edit]

street trees...??? -- (talk) 03:30, 11 August 2009 (UTC)


I am surprised that there is no mention of the dangers posed by this plant, especially in the section on Australia. In an environment already filled with plants that will ignite at the smallest spark, the camphor laurel doesn't just ignite it explodes and can easily turn a manageable bushfire into an emergency.

In the article, it says "the tree provides hollows quickly in younger trees, whereas natives can take hundreds of years to develop hollows." I find this confusing. If by "hollows," it means "holes," why would that be a problem (or an advantage—it isn't clear which is meant)? Is there a localized definition of the word? — Gorthian (talk) 22:54, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
