Wow, it's been a long time, 1.5 years since your last Tree Blog!
I'm glad that you've decided to "weiterführen"!

But is there a Weeping Beech? Never heard of it, only Weeping Willows, which are very popular in that region of Europe and feature in many fairy tales.
Isn't the magical, aggressive tree in Howarth's a Weeping Willow? Or a Weeping Beech?

What's the difference between a Beech and a Weeping Beech?

Ja, "weiterführen" dass ist richtig!

I think "weeping" just refers to any kind of tree where the branches droop down. The commonest is the Weeping Willow, found around lots of riverbanks, but there is also the well known "upside-down tree" - a weeping beech - in St James Park just outside Buckingham Palace

Just noticed your orange-flowered tree from Curacao on the last page - it's a so-called Geiger Tree (Cordia sebestena), common as a decorative tree in Florida. See

This International Tree Blog has been inactive for almost 4 years now. It was one of my favourite features in this Flora & Fauna forum.

Any chance of reviving it, nature lovers, by featuring Lamma's huge diversity of trees, some of them in full bloom now?

Here's a photo from NicBud of a tree root on the Family Trail to Sok Kwu Wan. This might have been photographed by quite a few visitors, some of them stumbling over it in the frequent foot traffic jams on holidays. Has the tree grown a wooden leg to defend itself or even furtively kick the occasional, obnoxious passerby?
